History of El Dorado Master Gardeners

The Master Gardener Program began in El Dorado County in 1981, just one year after the California program began in Sacramento.  We are proud to boast having one of the original California Master Gardeners who joined the Sacramento Master Gardeners in 1979 and transfeed to El Dorado County the following year.

We currently have 140 Certified Master Gardeners volunteering their time to educate our community about home horticulture and 32 in training.
