One of the least-known treasure troves of information in San Diego County is that over three hundred Master Gardeners (MGs) provide home gardening and pest control information throughout the county, FREE to the public.

The Master Gardener Association of San Diego County School Garden Committee further assists teachers in starting and maintaining gardens at their respective schools.
