Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

The multi-year drought on the Central Coast led community garden projects to confront water management and reduce use. Some gardens implement water use rules and conservation policies, yet few gardeners actually know how much water they use and few know management strategies to conserve water. This lack of understanding reflects gaps in urban agriculture research that my research aims to address.
