Master Gardeners are volunteers who enjoy gardening, want to learn more about the environment, and have a desire to help others in their community. An outreach effort of Cooperative Extension, the Master Gardeners program is 10 weeks of intensive training given by plant and soil sciences faculty and Extension educators in horticulture. In return, participants agree to give back 45 hours of volunteer service. Depending on their interests, Master Gardeners answer gardening and landscape questions called into the GardenLine; teach grade school children environmental sciences; offer how-to workshops open to the public; demonstrate methods of composting; and help to design, install and maintain county demonstration gardens.
