Master Gardeners are community members who have been trained under the direction of the University of California Cooperative Extension. Each volunteer has completed more than 50 hours of formal classroom training.

- offering workshops and classes
- answering questions via email hotlines, farmers markets and at community events
- publishing articles in newsletters, local newspapers and social media.
