You will be asked to attend an Orientation Session that will answer all your questions about the Master Gardener program held in November or December.  Training sessions will be a combination of on-line classes and group activities. You will need access to a computer to complete on-line classes that will provide video training and activities to complete.  We will meet twice monthly from 9 am – 4 pm to provide additional training and hands-on activities.

WSU Master Gardener volunteer training provides new volunteers with a background of unbiased, research-based information and recommendations on community horticultural topics. This knowledge is then used to provide WSU home and community gardening information to clients. It is an opportunity to increase your own horticulture knowledge as well as personal development skills.

The training fee is $150 to cover the cost materials and training expenses and provide 70 hours of community service over the next two years.

If you have any questions or need more information, please call Gary Fredricks at 577-3014 ext. 3.
