One of the least-known treasure troves of information in San Diego County is that over one-hundred Master Gardeners provide home gardening and pest control information through out the county, FREE to the public.
The Master Gardeners are volunteers trained and supervised by Farm Advisor Vincent Lazaneo, of the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE)
The mission of the UCCE is to conduct research on issues impacting the county, and to put the results of that research to good use. Cooperative Extension offices are located in counties throughout the nation. The Cooperative Extension Office in the county of San Diego is called the Farm and Home Advisor Department.
