Apply to Be a Master Gardener

What is a Master Gardener?

UCCE Master Gardeners are trained representatives of the University of California Cooperative Extension, providing horticultural advice and information to our home gardening community.

We are accepting names of those people interested in joining us in 2019. Click here if interested. 

Applicants should have some experience and a high degree of interest in gardening along with:

  • Ability to volunteer for 50 hours post training
  • Ability to communicate effectively with the public by telephone or by personal contact
  • Ability to complete the training program in plant science and horticulture

UC Master gardener volunteers help people in their local community and expand their horticultural horizons. They explore the life of the garden, put what they know into practice, and enjoy working with dedicated master gardener colleague-volunteers in a wide variety of interesting and challenging activities.
