UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe

Master Gardeners are community members who have been trained under the direction of the University of California Cooperative Extension. Each volunteer has completed more than 50 hours of formal classroom training. Master Gardeners, agents of the University of California, assist the UC Cooperative Extension by providing practical, scientific gardening information to the home gardeners in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

The Lake Tahoe Master Gardeners extend research-based information by:

  • answering questions via email hotlines, farmers markets and at community events
  • offering workshops and classes
  • publishing articles in newsletters, local newspapers and social media.
