Oregon State University Extension Service


The Horticulture program for Douglas County advises and educates commercial producers of wine grapes, ornamentals, fruit, nut, vegetable and berry crops on issues relating to insect pests, plant disease, fertilization, cultivar selection, and pesticide use. Homeowners are educated through the OSU Master Gardener™ program to help the community with their gardening questions.

Gardening Programs include: Master Gardener™; community gardening outreach through a variety of workshops; Plant Clinics at OSU Extension office and farmers markets to answer gardening questions; booths at the Douglas County Fair and Plant Garden Expo; and seasonal classes at the OSU Master Gardener™ Discovery Garden in River Forks Park. In addition, we are featured in local newspaper articles and radio shows covering educational horticulture topics.

Commercial activities include: farm visits to diagnose crop problems, grape grower field days, insect disease monitoring through trap sites across the county, IPM fall seminar, newsletter covering horticultural trends and problems, pesticide license advising and class credits.
