Master Gardeners are trained volunteers, educated through OSU Extension Service to offer the local community ReliableRelevant 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.
