Marcia Van Loy – UCCE Master Gardener
Marcia Van Loy has been a volunteer with the Master Gardener Association of San Diego County for over 17 years. She has gardened for over 35 years in the Clairemont area of San Diego and in the past coordinated their Town Council’s annual garden tour for nine years. Each April and May, Marcia opens her garden to garden clubs, garden societies, women and church groups for a tour of her garden. She also teaches classes in her garden on what plants to grow to attract birds, hummingbirds and butterflies.
After many years of collecting rustic bird houses, she now teaches Master Gardeners how to build them. The wooden and gourd designed birdhouses and our new children’s insect viewing boxes are sold at various garden events throughout the county. This is one of our major fundraisers supporting our outreach programs that supply free horticultural and pest control information to the public and school gardens.
Marcia is a sought-after speaker and has shared her depth of knowledge with many regional gardening organizations and, in the past presented a video feature on County News Center titled “Yard Makeovers to Cut Water and Add Color”. Her insights and techniques are verified and easy to understand and will give you a head start in attracting birds, hummingbirds and butterflies into your garden. Her garden is a Certified Wildlife Habitat, a Certified Earth Friendly Garden and was featured in the San Diego Home and Garden Magazine’s April 2013 edition. Growing plants for these creatures in her hillside garden is one of Marcia’s favorite subjects to share with others.
