Master Gardener Program Mission Statement

Kids in Garden

Since 1981, the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Master Gardener Program provides unbiased gardening and landscaping information to the public through the use of trained volunteers. The goals of the UC Master Gardener Program in San Bernardino County are: to encourage sustainable landscaping (efficient irrigation, integrated pest management stressing prevention, composting, etc.); to encourage growing food at home and in community and school gardens; and to promote healthy living and healthy communities through outdoor activities.   The next Master Gardener training class will be on Saturday mornings from January - April, 2019 at the Chino Basin Water Conservation District in Montclair.  Those selected for the program are required to provide at least 50 hours of volunteer services over a one year period.  The application will be posted here soon!
