Master Gardner classes are offered by the USDA County Cooperative Extension Service offices around the country. The program varies throughout the country, but typically, individuals attend at least 30-50 hours of classroom instruction and then contribute a minimum of 30-50 hours of volunteer service. The courses usually have a small cost to cover teaching materials. At least 20 hours of volunteering is required each subsequent year. Master Gardeners assist with garden lectures, exhibits, demonstrations, school and community gardening, phone diagnostic service, research, and many other projects. Contact your local County Cooperative Extension Service located in the blue pages of your telephone book.
