Below are examples on how Glenn County Master Gardeners share UC research-based information with the public.
Are the leaves on your apricot tree yellow and wilting? Does your bougainvillea need more light? How much water do your plants require?
The answers to these and many more questions are offered by Glenn County Master Gardeners at the Weekly Plant Clinic:

Over the past several years, the Glenn County Master Gardeners have hosted two main semiannual workshops, a Spring Workshop and a Fall Workshop. These workshops are designed for the general public to attend and learn about a variety of different UC research based, seasonally relevant, gardening topics.
In between the semiannual workshops, the Glenn County Master Gardeners have also hosted a variety of specialized workshops for the general public to learn about specific topics, such as Grafting Trees, or Pruning taught by UC ANR experts at seasonally appropriate times.
Master Gardeners are not professional landscapers, but we are happy to work with homeowners and discuss what their gardening or landscaping needs are so we can direct them toward the appropriate UC resources to help them create their own dream environment.
Master Gardeners are available give gardening presentations to community groups and organizations. If your group is interested in inviting the Master Gardeners to present, please contact the Master Gardeners of Glenn County, 530-865-1107.
Master Gardeners can be found manning a booth, or giving a demonstration at the Glenn County Fair. Come by and say "hello"!
