Collaborators and Community Resources
The Master Gardener Program works with a number of Community Programs, Agencies, and Organizations.
The Master Gardeners operate through the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE), a joint venture between UC Davis, our local land grant university, and the County of Alameda. At UCCE, staff work with academic advisors to provide nutrition and educational services to Alameda County residents.
UCCE and the the Master Gardener Program are proud to be under the auspices of the Environmental Health Department of Alameda County. Environmental Health deals with many issues that affect the health of the Alameda County residents.
