Maryland Farmers Offer Bay Friendly Gardening Tips - with links

Well, I’ve seen this headline and read this media post on at least 5 sources, including CBS Baltimore, The Washington Post,, and others.
The media release says this:
Maryland farmers are offering homeowners tips on bay-friendly backyard gardening practices.
The Maryland Department of Agriculture says the educational campaign highlights the importance of garden planning during the winter for stronger, healthier gardens and lawns and a cleaner Chesapeake Bay. Topics include proper use of fertilizers, pesticide alternatives, erosion and runoff control and water conservation.
Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance says many routine farm-based conservation measures can easily be adapted to lawn care and gardens.
Gardeners can get tips by visiting the department’s website or calling the University of Maryland Home and Garden Information Center at 410-531-5573 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

The problem is, none of the sources provide the direct link to the bay-friendly gardening tips.

So for everyone else who had a hard time finding the tips, here are some of the gardening tips provided by Maryland Farmers: Backyard Actions for a Cleaner Chesapeake Bay
