In-person Classes Cancelled
Hello Gardening Friends,
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, & in consideration of the recent guidance from Governor Newsom & the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the UC Master Gardeners of Monterey & Santa Cruz Counties are canceling all of our upcoming classes. This cancellation will remain in effect until further notice & will be updated as guidance from the state changes.
If you registered for one of our upcoming classes, you will receive an email regarding how you can receive a refund for any class fees you have paid.
We realize that our classes & events are valued by our community, & we appreciate your continued support & understanding during this public health challenge. We will attempt to offer our canceled classes at a future time, and in the interim, we will post instructional gardening videos on our very active Facebook page.
In the meantime, enjoy the wildflowers and the blossoms on fruit trees, and please stay safe by following recommended health practices in the coming weeks.
