Yvonne Rasmussen
Master Gardener Volunteer Program Coordinator, UCCE Napa County

I manage the Napa County UC Master Gardener program and the program's volunteers. I assist with volunteer training and help coordinate the Master Gardeners' public outreach programs for home gardeners in Napa County. I love sharing the excitement of discovery, figuring out how to solve a gardening problem in the least toxic way using UC resources.

About UC Cooperative Extension

For 100 years and counting, UCCE researchers and educators have worked together with local community members to develop and provide science-based information to solve economic, agricultural, natural resource, youth development and nutrition issues. Some of our programs include 4-H Youth Development, Master Gardeners, Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, and the Integrated Pest Management Program.

Here's to another 100 years of science and service!
