About Us

Who We Are

The University of California Cooperative Extension is the public service division of the University of California. Since 1914, this locally based service has been your direct connection to UC knowledge and expertise.

Our University of California advisors and community education specialists live in this community and work to enhance our quality of life in many ways, including

  • providing science-based solutions that sustain local farms and nurseries

  • hosting educational programs related to gardening

  • working to sustain water quality

  • youth development

The University of California Cooperative Extension is also actively collaborating with area groups including farmers, community leaders and non-profit organizations to address local complex economic, environmental and social issues.
