The Master Gardener Program is open to anyone who would like to learn more about gardening and at the same time assist the educational efforts of the Cooperative Extension Service. Prospective Master Gardeners participate in 40 hours of training in return for 40 hours of volunteer service during the first year. In subsequent years, volunteers donate 20 hours to stay active in the program. Activities include presentations of programs on Saturday mornings, speaking to garden clubs, answering phone calls from the gardening public, meeting walk-in visitors at the extension office, planting and maintaining demonstration gardens, visiting schools, and assisting with a variety of one-time educational events. Numerous continuing educational opportunities are provided to make this an ongoing learning experience for the Master Gardeners.

New classes occur every other year and the next is scheduled for the winter and spring of 2014.
