What is the VMS?
The Volunteer Management System (VMS) is an online system designed and built by the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) Web Action Team.
VMS is used by California master gardener volunteers and coordinators to manage time (hours), projects, newsletters, documents, and photo albums. Components of VMS are also used to facilitate discussion among volunteers, coordinators, and the statewide office.
The system is:
- user-friendly for volunteers
- modifiable by each county's Master Gardener Program administrator, to provide a unique site
- vigorous enough to retain record tracking functions required by UC and the Statewide Master Gardener Program.
