Community Horticulture and Gardening

The Community Horticulture and Gardening program works with volunteers, residents, youth, gardening clubs and anybody interested in growing and caring for plants.

Every gardener could use a little help, some gardeners need a lot of help! We bring research-based information to gardeners of all skill levels to help them address their gardening questions. We offer workshops, presentations to clubs and groups, gardening information via the Horticulture Hotline, and consultation for new community gardens.  You can find our Master Gardener volunteers at fairs, festivals, and farmers’ markets offering gardening information and advice, or you may find them working with school groups, assisting new gardens with design and interpretation, or hosting workshops of their own.
