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.
