Master Gardener Volunteer Management System Available

The University of California ANR Communication Services team is in the process of making their Master Gardener Volunteer Management System (VMS) available to other Extension programs throughout the country. The system includes hour reporting, calendaring, roster management, newsletter management and many other features, giving your MG programs a full-featured system of record keeping and reporting.

This is a mature system with over seven years of upgrades and improvements. Master Gardeners report that they are very happy with the features and ease of use, while County and Statewide administrators have the control and report functions they need. California is offering this as a hosted service with a yearly fee based on participating state population.
