Master Gardener Volunteers are neighbors teaching neighbors about horticultural topics and environmentally sound gardening practices. Master Gardener Volunteers receive training that draws on the horticultural research and experience of Cornell University.
To become a Master Gardener Volunteer, one must successfully complete the training course, volunteer 125 hours within a 2-year period, and remain active by volunteering at least 30 hours each year after graduation.
We welcome adults of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to the Master Gardener Volunteer program. Anyone who enjoys gardening, has a desire to share knowledge and skills, and who is willing to provide community service is encouraged to apply.
