UC HAREC values the work that all Master Gardener and 4-H volunteers do year-round. From tending gardens and research projects to teaching Ventura County Youth.
To reduce risk of COVID-19 virus spread, the UCCE Ventura County Office and Hansen Agricultural REC will be closed to the public from March 18 until further notice in accordance with UC guidelines and the Ventura County Stay Well at Home initiative. UC Academics and Staff will continue to work remotely during normal business hours.
All UC-ANR-hosted meetings/events scheduled through June 2020 have been canceled, postponed or will be conducted via Zoom. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds and will update the website with any changes. If you have questions or concerns, email us at email@example.com.
