The University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources' (UC ANR) 64 Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Offices are local problem-solving centers. We are the bridge between local issues and the power of UC research. Our county-based staff are a part of the community.
Map of our offices.
In Alameda County, our programs include:
UC CalFresh, Nutrition Education, Master Gardeners, Urban Integrated Pest Management, 4-H, Food and Money, and Urban Agriculture.
Statewide, we are 300 campus-based specialists and county-based advisors working as teams to bring practical, unbiased, science-based answers to problems across California.
As part of the agricultural community, we help farmers develop more-efficient growing methods, solve pest management problems and develop crops and irrigation methods that use less water.
As stewards of the land, we help develop smart water-use strategies, develop wildfire education and help preserve natural areas and farmland.
Thousands of volunteers extend the reach of our work, through the Master Gardener Program and the California 4-H Youth Development Program.
We work in full partnership with federal, state, county and private resources.
We are stewards, problem-solvers, catalysts, collaborators and educators.
We are UC Cooperative Extension.
