Tell us about your tomatoes
If you grew tomatoes purchased at the Master Gardener Tomato Market, we'd love to hear how the plants performed and how the tomatoes taste. Please take our survey to tell us which ones you like (and don't like). It only takes a few minutes, and your feedback will help determine next year's tomato varieties.

Community Gardens in Marin
Efficient Water Management
Marin is currently drought free due to the recent abnormally high rains (Atmospheric Rivers). Yet drought - or at least a long hot and dry summer - are predicted, and we don't know what will happen this season in Marin.
Efficient water usage is as critical during our rainy season as during our recent drought -- efficient water management is a constant California commitment.
Learn more on MMWD's Drought Information page. Thank you for your cooperation!

Visit the newest UC Marin Master Gardeners demonstration garden at Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden. Bring your own bags to purchase produce at the Saturday Farm stand.
The Marin Master Gardeners are a dedicated, trained group of volunteers with a shared love of gardening and horticulture. Through community service and educational outreach, they provide home gardeners and community organizations with the knowledge and skills to create a healthy environment for Marin County. Since 1986, Marin Master Gardeners have worked as non-paid staff members of the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE), answering public inquiries and providing information on all areas of plant health and gardening practices.
