What Are UC Marin Master Gardeners All About?

This video from the County of Marin will give you all the basics about the 300-plus Master Gardeners in our county.

Some of us have black thumbs and rely on green-thumbers for advice. 

UC Marin Master Gardeners are a trained group of 300-plus volunteers who share their knowledge and skills with home gardeners and community organizations. Through educational outreach and community service, they work as non-paid staff members of the University of California Cooperative Extension, answering inquiries and providing research-based information on all areas of plant health and gardening practices to the public.

Why become a Master Gardener? Working with a group of gardening enthusiasts, you would gain knowledge about the life of the garden, and put what you know into practice for the benefit of others and the environment. Master Gardeners focus their training and volunteer projects on principles such as sustainable landscape practices, feeding your neighborhood and creating local food sources, and training people to promote youth gardening. 

Last year Marin Master Gardeners donated more than 24,200 hours to community service projects.
