Hello, everyone! I wanted to take a second to meet all of you. My name is Aubrey Bray and I am the new Program Representative for the Statewide Master Gardener Program. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of such an incredible organization!
A little about me….I was born and raised in Lake Isabella, CA a quaint little town nestled in the Sierra foothills. I found my love for agriculture through high school agriculture classes and the FFA. I attended Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo and received a B.S. in Agricultural Business. While at Cal Poly, I discovered my love for gardening through numerous Horticulture classes and competing with the floral design team. Living in a small studio on the Central Coast has limited me to container gardening for the past 5 years, but my husband and I are excited to move to Red Bluff and put down roots—literally and figuratively! I love my puppy “Tule,” any sort of outdoor activity, and learning new things. I truly feel that this position will allow me to pursue the things that I am passionate about and can’t wait to get into the thick of it all!
Speaking of which, I’ll be taking a little tour over the next month or so to visit county programs. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and visiting some of your programs in the next few weeks to get a glimpse of what Master Gardeners looks like at the local level.
So tell me, what is your favorite thing about Master Gardeners?
