California Friendly Gardening
A California Friendly garden features smart and sustainable landscaping using plants, shrubs, grasses and trees that are native or adapted to your regional climate and local conditions. Showcase the health and beauty that is a California garden.
Creatures in the Garden
In a world where natural habitats are being depleted, gardens are a haven for many creatures. The wild, and not so wild creatures that use our gardens can become familiar companions, or rare and special visitors. Beetles and butterflies, birds and bunnies, may take center stage and steal the show.
What’s in your garden? From seedlings to harvest, apples to zucchini, show us your best fruit, vegetable or herb fresh from the garden! Ripe and ready to eat or green hanging on a tree all edibles are welcome in this category.
UC Master Gardeners in Action
Every day volunteers make a difference in communities across California. Tell the volunteer story through photos featuring UC Master Gardeners working in their communities and supporting their programs.
Celebrate the true beauty of the plant – from seed to flower, foliage to stem. Plant portraiture is all about capturing the very essence, or character, of a plant. Get creative with extreme close up or stay classic, all styles are welcome.
