Become a Master Gardener
To become a UC Master Gardener, volunteers must complete an intensive home horticulture training and pass an exam testing their knowledge and ability to find scientific-based answers to public inquiries.
Due to COVID-19 and the safety of our communities, a statewide order of sheltering-in-place for California has made it necessary to cancel and or postpone all in-person training classes. Our next training class will begin in January 2022, with an online application window opening in the summer of 2021.
