What is a Master Gardener?

UCCE Master Gardeners are volunteers trained and certified by the University of California (UC) to provide UC research-based information about home horticulture and pest management that helps home gardeners and community organizations garden sustainably and create a healthy environment.

In exchange for the training and materials received from the University of California, Master Gardeners perform volunteer services in many ways through community service and educational outreach. Below are examples on how we share UC research-based information to the public:

  • Classes
  • Workshops
  • Helpline
  • Fairs and plant clinics
  • One-on-one consultation
  • Demonstration gardens
  • Social Media
