Cooperative Extension & Master Gardener

The Cooperative Extension System is a federally supported network of agricultural university local and regional offices which provide research-based practical information to farmers, home gardeners, consumers and others in all 50 states of the U.S. In the Master Gardener program, avid gardeners are given intensive formal training in exchange for volunteer assistance to extension educational services for home, school and community gardening.

Contact your county or regional extension office and Master Gardener association for local fruit growing and gardening information.

Find your nearest Cooperative Extension Office: California or All U.S.
