Community Education Gardening Presentations
Are you interested in having OSU Master Gardeners present gardening education at your event? The Oregon State University Extension Master Gardener™ program educates Oregonians about the art and science of growing and caring for plants. OSU Extension Master Gardeners are volunteer educators, neighbors, and on-the-ground researchers who serve their community with solid training in science-based, sustainable gardening and a love of lifelong learning.
Master Gardener’s Speaker’s Guild and Community Education Gardening Presentations
The metro area OSU Master Gardener program schedules presenters to speak to community groups and/or lead hands-on classes for a wide variety of horticulture subjects, based on volunteer availability.
- Master Gardeners are trained by OSU faculty and horticulture experts and gardening information presented is research-based.
- Master Gardeners make presentations to libraries, civic groups, neighborhood associations, garden clubs, educational organizations, and at community events.
- Depending on group needs, program formats can include slideshow presentations, demonstrations, hands-on learning, or virtual presentations.
Fill out this quick interest survey and we will get in touch with you about the possibilities for scheduling a volunteer(s) for a virtual or in-person presentation.
