Description:

Do you enjoy gardening and talking with others about it? Do you have a passion for making a difference in your community? If so, consider becoming a part of the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers! The Extension Master Gardener volunteers are an outreach group part of N.C. Cooperative Extension and N.C. State University. These volunteers serve their community by sharing research-based information on horticulture-related issues and community beautification projects.

To become a certified Extension Master Gardener volunteer, individuals receive horticulture and plant science training from their local Cooperative Extension Center through a 13-week course given by a variety of local speakers and Extension personnel. New volunteers are encouraged to participate in various other activities and events throughout the year. Some of these events include: hosting a community Flower and Garden Show each spring, an annual Fall Plant Sale, maintaining a local landscape demonstration garden, propagating and managing a greenhouse full of different plant varieties, presenting educational programs, and partnering with local 4-H horticulture clubs and elementary schools.
