Master Gardener Volunteers

The Georgia Master Gardener Program is a volunteer training program designed to help the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension staff transfer research-based information about gardening and related subjects to the public by training home gardeners. Volunteers benefit from the training, networking with other garden enthusiasts, and the opportunity to serve their communities. Through this program, Cooperative Extension is able to reach out and serve more citizens with educational programming and demonstrations in 5 target areas.
