Master Gardeners team with HomeFirst to serve homeless

Gov. Newsom met Katherine Uhde while touring a UC Master Gardener project to help the homeless in Santa Clara County.

Gov. Gavin Newsom was in San Jose, the Bay Area's largest city, Feb. 27 to tour tiny houses that are designed as transitional living communities. Newsom said it is an innovative project that could help combat the homeless crisis across the state.

UC Master Gardeners are landscaping the community in partnership with HomeFirst, which provides services, shelter, and housing opportunities to the homeless and those at risk of homelessness in Santa Clara County. 

“The tiny home project is an exciting opportunity for UC Master Gardeners in Santa Clara County to address food security and sustainability in bridge housing,” said Katherine Uhde, UC Master Gardener Program coordinator in Santa Clara County.
