Mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 28, 2023! Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for you to make a donation to a program that has made a difference in your life.
We invite you to support us in our quest to promote healthier gardens, people, and more sustainable landscapes.
Here are some photos of our UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners in action helping make Stanislaus County a better place.
You can watch the class on our YouTube channel, http://ucanr.edu/youtube/ucmgstanislaus and follow along using a handout from our Classes and Workshops page https://ucanr.edu/sites/stancountymg/Classes/.
One of our volunteers, Denise Godbout-Avant, filmed a short video showing how much of our earth's water is fresh, and how much is available for people to use. This is a fascinating and eye-opening example you will not want to miss. Watch it here:

As many readers know, University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) in Stanislaus County recently launched a Master Gardener Program.
This statewide program trains volunteers who then teach residents about composting, using less water in the landscape, growing fruits and vegetables, and how to safely and effectively manage pests in the home and landscape.
Our program is just getting started and it could use your help. We are asking for support on June 5, 2019 on Big Dig Day—a day to “dig in the soil, dig in your heart, and dig in your wallet to support a program you care about!”
We hope you can help us with our mission to extend research-based knowledge and information on home horticulture, pest management, and sustainable landscaping practices to the community.
Our program needs funds to purchase supplies such as pop-up tents, tables, chairs, banners, and tablecloths for farmers markets and other events. We can also use funds to help provide partial scholarships for residents who might not be able to afford the fee to enroll in our program.
Please join anytime during the 24-hour giving day. If you make a donation, please share your excitement on social media using #BigDigDay and #DigDeep.
Visit the our #BigDigDay page and select “Master Gardener Program” and then “Stanislaus” from the drop-down menu anytime from now until June 5.
UCCE is a division of Agricultural and Natural Resources (UCANR).
