Don Walton is a Davis County resident and has been an active member of the Davis County Master Gardeners since 2011. Don keeps up with many projects on his own around the county and participates in many of the Master Gardener group projects as well. One of Don's favorite topics is how to make use of the space you have when gardening. Due to limited space around his own home, Don has gotten creative in order to grow all of his yearly favorites and make room for a few experiments each year. In order to do this, Don relies heavily on various vertical structures that he makes himself. Don is innovative, cost-effective, and always looking for ways to make the long-term work less when it comes to gardening.
