Welcome to our new Garden Center
MASTER GARDENERS (UC Cooperative Extension)
The Primary Role Of A Master Gardener is to Educate!
Master Gardeners answer questions, conduct demonstrations, diagnose plant/pest problems, and provide this horticultural assistance by telephone, newspaper, public speaking, and public contact. The primary role of the Master Gardener is to be an educator. Each MG is expected to teach, write, and present information to the general public.
Master Gardeners are members of communities who are trained by Cooperative Extension experts in different aspects of plant science. In exchange for instruction, persons who become Master Gardeners volunteer through their local Cooperative Extension office to extend information to their community.

California Native Plant Society (CNPS)
Preserving and Protecting California Native Plants and Their Habitats
The native plants of California are unlike any other in the world. From the richly colored expanse of spring wildflowers in the desert to groves of Monterey cypress on the coast, California's wild gardens are immensely diverse and awe-inspiring in their beauty.
California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is a statewide non-profit organization of amateurs and professionals with a common interest in California's native plants. Through membership in CNPS, Californians of all walks of life are able to learn about gardening and landscaping with native plants. Since 1965, CNPS has worked hard to protect California's native plant heritage and preserve it for future generations.
