The purpose of the University of California Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program is to extend research-based, scientifically accurate information to the public about home horticulture and pest management. In exchange for the training and materials received from the University of California, Master Gardeners perform volunteer services sharing the information they have learned in the Master Gardener Training Program with the gardening public.
Volunteer availability varies; please call or email to see if we can accommodate your request.
Scheduling speakers requires a minimum of 30 days notice from the date of the presentation.
Catalog of Topics Offered
Presentations with a demonstration require reimbursement of materials to the speaker, paid in advance.
A minimum of 15 participants is required to schedule a speaker for the presentation. Some speakers request a minimum of 20 participants to compensate for their time to prepare the presentation and time to travel to the site.
Master Gardeners do not charge for their services. Organizations that pay honorariums please write a check (no cash please) payable to the Regents of the University of California (UC Regents). The speaker will accept the check. Funds support your local Orange County Master Gardeners Speakers Bureau.
