NC State Extension Master Gardener volunteers provide unbiased, research-based information on gardens, lawns, and landscapes.

Under the guidance and direction of Extension agents, volunteers complete a 40-hour training program, pass an examination, and complete at least a 40-hour internship.

To remain active in the program volunteers must log a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer time and a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education each year.

Is the Extension Master Gardener Program for Me?

To help you decide if you should apply to become an Extension Master Gardenersm volunteer, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I want to learn more about growing many types of plants?
  • Am I eager to participate in a practical and intense training program?
  • Do I look forward to sharing my knowledge with people in my community?
  • Do I have enough time to attend training sessions and serve as a volunteer?

Training

The fee includes 40 hours of instruction, a hardcover Extension Gardener Handbook, supplies, and any course trips.
