Striving to provide the funding and resources to optimize the effectiveness of our people, the impact in our communities and the partnership with our University.
Making a Difference
Growing, Learning, Teaching
Last year, our 120 trained Master Gardeners volunteered nearly 13,000 hours answering gardening questions in our plant answer clinics, teaching classes in our demonstration gardens, through our Speakers Bureau, Writers’ Guild, and Youth program, and growing produce for local Food Banks. Through our Heirloom Garden, we maintain our Seed Library, providing free seed, education, and preservation of endangered plant species that thrive in our local climate.
