Gwinnett Master Gardener Volunteers

The Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Program is a volunteer training program offered through county offices of UGA Extension.   Through this program individuals are trained in home horticulture, gardening, and related areas. These individuals, in turn, volunteer their expertise and services, under the direction of the Extension Service, to help others through horticultural projects that benefit the community. Georgia Master Gardener Extension
Volunteers bring the latest horticultural information and practices from The University of Georgia to their communities’ landscapes and gardens; making life better for citizens in Gwinnett County.
