The Oregon State University Master Gardener™ Program

is an Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service program that educates Oregonians about the art and science of growing and caring for plants. This program also facilitates the training of a highly educated corp of volunteers. These volunteers extend sustainable gardening information to their communities through education and outreach programs.

Master Gardeners are trained volunteers, educated through OSU Extension Service to offer the local community Reliable, Relevant and Reachable gardening information and education opportunities.

  • Reliable: our gardening advice and education is science-based.   
  • Relevant: customized information for your gardening situation.
  • Reachable: Call us on the phone, email us a question, or visit with us at markets or gardens in your community.

What We Do and Where We Work:  In 30 counties across Oregon, Master Gardener volunteers answer gardening questions at OSU Extension offices, at community Farmers' markets, and at Master Gardener events.  Volunteers create and manage demonstration gardens, school gardens and community gardens.  They host garden tours, workshops and classes in their communities.
