UCCE Master Gardeners of El Dorado County want your input!

UCCE Master Gardeners of El Dorado County want your input. It is our charge to educate the public on current gardening issues and to give advice on how to become better home gardeners. To help us understand your needs as a home gardener, we have created a short ten-question survey.  You can complete the survey online by clicking this link or pasting it into your browser -- bit.ly/1qCsRId  Or, you can download a paper copy of the survey, which is attached.

Master Gardeners are local volunteers trained by the University of California in all aspects of home gardening: from growing awesome veggies, to caring for perennial and annual plants, as well as fruit trees, soils, pest management, weather, weed control and more. The survey asks what day of the week, what times, and what locations are best for our free public gardening classes. It asks what class topics interest you -- such as edible landscaping, roses or gardening with children. 

The survey takes only a few minutes to complete. Please help us and complete the survey now. We value your input. For questions, call the El Dorado County Master Gardener office (530) 621-5512, or you are welcome to visit our office from Tuesday to Friday between 9:00 a.m. and noon, at 311 Fair Lane in Placerville.
