Become a Master Gardener Volunteer!

Would you like to be a more successful gardener? Do you want to understand the science of gardening? Are you interested in sharing your knowledge with others? If so, you should become a Master Gardener Volunteer! Master Gardener Volunteers are people just like you who enjoy gardening and desire to share their passion and knowledge with others. Master Gardeners volunteer with their local Cooperative Extension’s horticulture outreach program to share their information with people in their communities.

The first step to becoming a Master Gardener is to attend Master Gardener training, which begins August 18th in Pender County.Master Gardener training is open to all Pender County residents. No previous horticultural training is required. All you need is an interest in gardening and a desire to learn and share your knowledge. Becoming a Master Gardener will provide you with research based knowledge focused on environmentally friendly gardening and landscaping for our local growing conditions, and offers volunteer opportunities to assist with educational programs throughout the county. As a Master Gardener you will meet other people from Pender County that share your interest and be part of an organization dedicated to helping people garden more successfully.
