  • How Can I Become a Master Gardener?

  • Volunteers must attend 40 hours of training offered by the UT Extension. Classes meet twice a week for 6 weeks. The sessions cover a wide variety of topics including wildlife, landscaping, flowers, trees, lawns, insects, plant diseases, and more. After completing the training the volunteer becomes an Intern for a year.
    To become a “Certified Master Gardener,” an Intern must complete and document a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer gardening related service and 8 hours of continuing education.


  • Master Gardener Intern Training

    The 2021 Master Gardener Intern Training started in February 2021 with two different sets of classes. The majority of the training is taking place online via Zoom. Additional in-person training opportunities will be determined.
