Master Gardeners

Master Gardeners are an enthusiastic group of volunteers who love to share their gardening passion and know-how.  They give talks, teach classes, manage teaching gardens, answer gardening questions, offer horticultural therapy and recognize Bay-Wise landscapes. 

Our goal is to inform and inspire as we teach safe, effective gardening techniques that build healthier backyards and communities. 

Join us.  If you have a green thumb, love to learn and share what you know, you could be a Master Gardener.
