Who are the Master Gardeners?

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. Master Gardeners help the Cooperative Extension office provide practical scientific gardening information to the home gardeners of the Lake Tahoe Basin.

How we serve the Lake Tahoe Basin area:

Information Booths at Local Events: Master Gardeners staff information booths and give demonstrations at various community events. Look for us at the various Farmers Markets, Earth Day Events and more.
