Master Gardener Presenters

  • Jamie Chan: In addition to being a UC Master Gardener, Jamie is the current Director of Programs and Partnerships at The Gardens of Golden Gate Park. She is a native San Franciscan who loves to garden, while tending chickens and honeybees in her foggy urban backyard.
  • Cynthia Crew Nations: Cynthia graduated in 2015 and has served as Secretary, Spring Garden Market lead for three years, Education Committee chair, writer and editor for the gardening articles featured in the monthly Coastside Magazine, Coordinator for the 2020 Master Gardener education class and President from 2020-2022. Her gardening interests include growing edibles, houseplants, and drought-tolerant natives and succulents.
  • Cindi Morris: As a child, Cindi visited Ferry Morse Seed Company where her father worked. She loved peeking into the labs and seeing all the experiments. The best part was picking out some seed packets to take home to grow. She was amazed that you could plant a small seed and it would grow into a wonderful flower. As a UC Master Gardener volunteer, she was the tomato growing lead and participates in the annual Spring Garden Market every year. She currently maintains an herb garden in the San Carlos Library garden and leads the San Mateo Arboretum plant clinic each month.
