Become a Master Gardener
Ask yourself these question:
|Do I want to learn more about plants, growing things, and gardening?|
|Am I eager to participate in a practical and intensive training program?|
|· Do I look forward to sharing my knowledge with people in my community?|
|· Do I have enough time to attend the training & complete my volunteer work?|
You can obtain an application through your local extension Office. The only requirement is that you have an interest in some aspect of gardening and, at the conclusion of training, are willing to volunteer a minimum of 50 hours of service to the county Extension program in your county.
Acceptance of applicant is based upon local county program needs. Upon acceptance, applicants are notified of the location and time that classes will take place. A fee is charged to cover the materials & facilities during training. To graduate, class attendance is required and you must pass a mid-term and final exam.
The Master Gardener program is coordinated in each county by an Extension agent, and each applicant is responsible to him/her for all classes, volunteer work, etc.
