Master Gardener Program

Master Gardeners are citizens helping citizens who:

  • Improve the efficiency of the Extension Service and allow agents to develop proactive programs.
  • Learn and share principles and practices of environmental horticulture by extending unbiased, research-based UF/IFAS information to the community.

What do Master Gardeners do?

  • Volunteer at the Extension Office, answering homeowner plant questions
  • Help maintain the Arboretum and demonstration gardens for educational use
  • Speak to local groups about home gardening
  • Work to grow a crop in our greenhouse
  • Continue their education through advanced trainings and educational field trip

What do our Master Gardener Volunteers Think?

Volunteering for the Master Gardener Program allows me to meet people, practice gardening skills, keep current on the latest gardening trends, and share knowledge with others in the community.  I also enjoy educational field trips to places that I wouldn't normally be able to go.

           - Pat Collier, 20th year Master Gardener Volunteer

Volunteering for the Master Gardener Program gives me the opportunity to share something I love with other people, improve my own skills, and give back to the community.  The benefits that I receive include lifelong learning, personal satisfaction, improved communication skills, comradery with the group, and lots of fun activities!

           - Cindy Jenkins, 17th year Master Gardener Volunteer

I enjoy the continued learning experience, sharing ideas with other Master Gardeners, learning new techniques for my own garden, and also helping friends and neighbors.
