Thank you for your interest in the Master Gardener Extension Volunteer (MGEV) Program!

Master Gardeners work with and are representatives of University of Georgia (UGA) Extension. This program is ideal for individuals who have the time and dedication to make an impact in their community through volunteer service. You do not have to have prior gardening experience or be physically able to garden to be a Master Gardener. Our mission is to improve lives and the environment by providing unbiased, research-based horticultural education. We believe in the old saying, “If you give a person a fish, they’ll have fish for a day. If you teach a person to fish, they’ll have fish for a lifetime.” For this reason, passion for learning about horticulture and relaying information to a wide variety of consumer audiences is essential for becoming a successful Master Gardener.
