Master Gardeners of Ventura County


Master Gardeners volunteer about 20,000 hours each year to gardening programs around Ventura County.  These programs include everything from hosting garden-based field trips for school children and building community gardens, to assisting with agricultural research.  Here are a few examples:

We don’t make home visits, design or install your home garden, or make on-site diagnoses.  However, when it involves gardening, contact us.  Maybe we can suggest other organizations that may be helpful.
