It’s official: announcing our partnership with master gardeners

The UC Davis Good Life Garden is proud to announce that Master Gardeners from throughout the area will be contributing to our website.  We thought it would be interesting for you to know a little bit about their backgrounds to start off, so, about once a month for the next few months we’ll be introducing them to you!  These introductory articles will be followed by original articles about gardening by these experts.  By promoting this valued program to our audience, we hope to inspire the Master Gardener in you!  You may find that you too would like to become a Master Gardener,  take advantage their many classes or, call their hotlines with questions.

Who are the Master Gardeners?

A group of volunteers trained in horticulture, the Master Gardener Program functions as a partnership between the University of California, the USDA, county governments and California residents. After receiving training based on UC-verified research, Master Gardeners extend their knowledge to the public via classes, demonstrations and other venues like farmer’s markets and the Master Gardeners hotline.

The Master Gardener programs focus on sustainable practices, teaching people to be more environmentally aware in areas like integrated pest management, energy and soil conservation, and waste management.
