New look for the main index page. Actually a modified old look. Put the What's New update back on the first page. People were missing the new resources. We're doing this with some misgivings - makes the page a little too cluttered for our taste. Let us know what you think.
The Kate Sessions Statue dedication ceremony will be held on April 1 (info). Information about this event and other gardening-related attractions can be found in the new Gardening-Related Attractions Section of the San Diego Gardener.

Added a list of gardening education opportunities to the San Diego Gardener. Some highlights...
- Two workshop announcements: Backyard Composting Workshop & Organic Gardening Workshop ... by Digitalseed's chief gardening expert, Tammy Tatum.
- San Diego Home Gardening Seminar ... the biggest gardening education event in San Diego!
- A list of public educational institutions that offer gardening classes.
- A short list (soon to be expanded) of private organizations and nurseries that offer gardening-related classes and demonstrations ... We're thinking of putting all this info into a searchable database that nurseries can update online (free of charge!) - It all depends on if we can get the necessary cooperation.
