Georgia Master Gardener Program

The Georgia Master Gardener Program is a ten week horticultural course under the leadership of UGA Extension. Our mission is to train the best general horticulturists who can provide unbiased and up-to-date horticultural information to the community through volunteer service.

The Master Gardeners of Georgia are invaluable for their assistance to local County Extension Agents in helping meet the public demand for gardening information. Therefore, it is important that you have a flexible daytime schedule in order to meet our volunteer needs. The program requires 50 hours of volunteer service the first year, as approved by the Towns and Union County Extension Agents; and 25 hours per year thereafter.
