Are you interested in becoming a Master Gardener™? Master Gardeners are people like you, interested in learning more about the art and science of growing and caring for plants in the garden, the landscape, and the home. In exchange for classroom instruction, Master Gardeners agree to help local Extension faculty and staff extend horticultural information to people in their communities.
Master Gardeners Help People
The Curry County Extension Office provides training, events and opportunities for the general public in home horticulture and gardening. The Master Gardener program gives people a chance not only to learn but to share what they have learned with their community.
Who are Master Gardeners?
Master Gardeners are people interested in learning more about the art and science of growing and caring for plants for the garden, the landscape and the home. In exchange for classroom instruction, Master Gardeners extend garden information to their communities. The Master Gardener commitment is to act as a volunteer staff person for the OSU Extension Service.
What a Master Gardener does will vary according to the needs of the Extension Service and the desires, skills, and availability of the Master Gardener. Some Master Gardeners answer telephone requests for gardening information. Others staff plant clinics, plant sales or a booth at the county fair. Master Gardeners might also speak to local groups, serve on advisory committees or as officers for the local Curry County MG Association, or assist with statewide activities such as the Master Gardener mini-college that is held annually at OSU.
