Grow your gardening roots deep

You may think gardening is just hard work, but gardeners know the rich payoffs: harvests of beautiful flowers, nutritious fresh veggies and inviting places to sit under a favorite shade tree.

Intrigued? Consider becoming a volunteer for the U.C. Master Gardener Program of Sonoma County. Applications for the 2020 Training Class are being accepted now.

Every two years, U.C. Master Gardeners of Sonoma County select 30-35 people to train as new U.C. Master Gardener Program volunteers.

They look for people who are interested in learning University of California research-based horticultural practices in order to bring that knowledge to their community, who are committed to creating a sustainable environment throughout the county, and are passionate about volunteering with the organization.

Applicants do not have to be gardening experts to become U.C. Master Gardener Program volunteers. Master Gardeners learn science-based gardening practices from U.C. and local college faculty. Once trained, they share sustainable gardening knowledge with other home gardeners.
