  • How Can I Become a Master Gardener?

  • Each Master Gardener must attend a 12 week training course offered by the UT Extension. The classes cover a wide variety of topics including wildlife, landscaping, flowers, trees. lawns, insects, plant diseases, and more. After completing the training you become an Intern for a year.
