About The Master Gardener Volunteers Program

The Master Gardener Volunteers (MGV) are community members interested in helping extend the outreach of UF/IFAS Extension's science-based horticulture information to the community. MGVs continually learn about the newest topics and trends in horticulture and extend that knowledge through community education events, school gardens, demonstration gardens, Help Desk, and tabling activities. They are committed to helping their community learn all about horticulture, including topics related to Florida-Friendly Landscaping and Sustainable Home Food Production.
