How to become a Master Gardener

So You Want to Be a Master Gardener? You can become a Master Gardener if you are interested in learning about plants and gardening, willing to provide forty hours of volunteer service to the community and helping others know how to grow.

The Master Gardener training program expands your knowledge of plants and their environment, provides hand-on experience as well as an opportunity to help others with their questions and problems. Your experience not only will be rewarding, but you will also gain a huge family of friends along the way.
