The Benton County office of the OSU Extension Service receives more than 3,000 requests for home gardening information annually. To provide this information, Extension enlists the assistance of Master Gardener volunteers.

Your gardening questions can be answered by visiting our office, by calling us at 541-766-6750, at one of our educational events, or by reading one of our great gardening publications.

"The Master Gardener program is a great community service program for the area.  It was a wonderful opportunity for me to be able to learn from very knowledgeable people. I have been able to apply quite a few things that I learned in the classes to my everyday work. It was also really nice to meet a bunch of very nice people in the area." Trainee from 2012 MG class
