The Master Gardener program provides Oregonians with education about gardening and horticulture. In return, trainees agree to match the time spent in instruction with gardening-related public service. These enthusiastic volunteers serve an increasingly larger home gardening audience, and are equipped with tools to become better gardeners, a network of fellow gardeners, and a means of service to others. Extension Agents enjoy watching Master Gardeners become more confident, outgoing and aware of the need for their knowledge.
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.
