Suffolk County Master Gardener Volunteers


Master Gardener Volunteers are neighbors teaching neighbors about horticultural topics and environmentally sound gardening practices. Master Gardeners volunteer at public sites including Suffolk County Farm Herb and Children's Garden, The Northport VA facility, the Medford Train Station, the Vanderbilt estate and the Ketcham Inn to name a few. Master Gardeners  are active at community gardens in South Huntington, Brentwood, Northport, and Bellport.  Master Gardeners are also teaching children about gardening in Islip, Greenport, Riverhead, and Southold.

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.

Anyone who enjoys gardening, has a desire to share knowledge and skills, and who is willing to provide volunteer community service is encouraged to apply.
