As a trained Master Gardener™ volunteer, you help educate and advise other home gardeners in your community. Many people new to Lane County as well as inexperienced gardeners are interested in obtaining local gardening advice. Our informative training program focuses on such skills as diagnosing plant and insect problems, preparing soil for planting, identifying plants, and selecting ornamentals and varieties. More importantly, your knowledge gives you the confidence to share expertise with others. Being a Master Gardener™ volunteer is fun, interesting, and rewarding. You will be joining a community of like-minded, fun people, too!
