I’d been hearing bits and pieces about this new organization for awhile and it looks like things are getting going because they now have a website!
Here’s their “About Us” statement:
The California Center for Urban Horticulture (CCUH) was established at UC Davis in early 2007 through a partnership that includes the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, UC Cooperative Extension, the horticulture industry, professional horticulture associations, and California public gardens such as the UC Davis Arboretum. The CCUH is envisioned as a statewide hub of horticultural research and information extended to the public through nurseries and landscape professionals, educators in public schools, gardening clubs, and organizations like Master Gardeners.
