UC Master Gardener volunteers are extensively trained through the University of California on sustainable landscaping, food gardening, water conservation, and community well-being. These volunteers are respected teachers and leaders in their communities on home gardening and sustainable landscaping practices. UC Master Gardeners typically live an active lifestyle, are outdoor enthusiasts, and most importantly are leaders in their communities.
