Extension Master Gardeners

The Master Gardener program is a volunteer program in which K-State Research and Extension "trades" classroom training for volunteer time.

Training consists of 40 to 50 hours of instruction in all aspects of horticulture. Instructors include state specialists from Kansas State University, local extension agents and local experts in specific subject matter.

After training is completed, volunteers donate an equivalent number of hours of service as was received in instruction. Service activities are coordinated by the local county extension agent. Though volunteer activities vary widely, all are educational, extension related and represent the interests of K-State Research and Extension.
