Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Training Class (MGEV)

If you are interested in or have questions about the 2025 class, please contact Karin Hicks at or 770-535-8293.  We will be accepting applications starting August 1 - September 30, 2024.

Master Gardener Extension Volunteers are representatives of the University of Georgia Extension. As a volunteer, you assist Extension staff with community programs relating to horticulture and the environment. You do not need to know everything about gardening – you will learn more and more as you participate in the program. You do need to have an interest in learning and giving back to your community. With your Master Gardener certificate, you will be working with Hall County Extension to deliver timely, research-based information.
