As certified Master Gardeners, we are encouraged to share our knowledge and expertise with our local communities.

The Master Gardener Program has given us unique training in a wide range of horticultural subjects. And with our own love of gardening, our years of gardening experience and the skills we have gained along the way, Master Gardeners are an invaluable resource.

Step up to the challenge and share your skills! There is a great need for people with our gardening expertise to assist in our local communities. We receive regular requests for Master Gardeners to teach classes, to work with school kids, to talk to local gardening groups about a wide range of horticultural subjects, from vegetable gardening to beneficial insects. Whatever your particular skills or level of interest, there is an opportunity for you to spread the word about good gardening practices.
