Do you grow berry crops like strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries? What about tree fruits like cherries or peaches?


The Central Oregon Horticulture Program is responsible for providing education to the residents and commercial green industry of Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson Counties. We provide this education through seminars, workshops, publications and several other ways.

We also serve as an outlet for all of your gardening questions. You can either call or visit our plant clinic.  We will assist you in identifying your weed, disease, and insect problems and recommend safe and research- based management for these issues.

The Horticulture staff and local OSU Master Gardeners give presentations on regional garden topics throughout the year. We also have several garden publications available to you at little or no cost. We provide annual OSU Master Gardener training in the tri-county area for those interested in a great volunteer opportunity.

The High Desert Gardening Newsletter is published 5 times a year. A sample copy is available for you to view.  The cost is $10 per year for a color, mailed copy and a one-time set-up fee of $5 to receive it by email.
