2019 Master Gardener Volunteer Program

Thank you for your interest in the OSU Extension Service Master Gardener™ Program in Lane County!

To become a certified Master Gardener™, participants must complete training classes and 40 hours of on-the-job plant clinic training, plus 20 additional hours of approved volunteer service. You will have a variety of service opportunities available ranging from answering gardening questions from the public, planning a statewide conference, to working with schools and community groups. Anyone interested in horticulture can apply to the program.

The 2019 Master Gardener Volunteer Program is now closed. Applications for the 2020 Master Gardener Volunteer Training will be available July 2019.
