Watch Us Work


In January 2024, UC Master Gardeners doled out free "Advice to Grow By," seeds, and cuttings at the 16th Annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap.  These were twins from Ventura who wanted information on plants that would thrive in very sandy soil and windy environments. They left with lots of information and encouragement to plant natives!

The UC Master Gardener Program is sponsored by the University of California Cooperative Extension, a division of UC Agriculture and Natural Resources.
