Master Gardener Information: VRS Reporting System & Recertification Req's.

This site provides information for Master Gardeners to stay current with state information, recertification requirements, and volunteer hours reporting.


Online Volunteer Reporting System (VRS)

The online Volunteer Reporting System (VRS) allows Master Gardener volunteers to enter in their volunteer service hours and their continuing education hours from any computer with an internet connection.  Volunteers can pull up and review their volunteer hours (categorized by project type) and their continuing education hours at any time. 

You may access the VRS from the Master Gardener web page:  

Please make sure you download and read the entire VRS information sheet located at the center of the page first by clicking on the link and opening the pdf file.  This sheet describes how to enroll in the VRS, as well as how to enter in service hours and continuing education hours.  The file name once you download is called “VRS information sheet.pdf”.
