Got Gardening Questions?

As Ventura County recovers from COVID-19, the Master Gardeners of Ventura County are delighted to reinstate Helpline walk-in hours. If you have questions or samples from your home garden, Master Gardeners are available on-site during the last week of the month on Tuesday and Friday from 1 pm to 3 pm. We are located at the UCCE Office, 669 County Square Drive, Suite 100, Ventura 93003.

And in response to ongoing concerns, the Master Gardener Helpline is happy to respond to your home gardening questions via email. Contact us at and be sure to include your zip code in the message. Images are also helpful.
