WSU Jefferson County Extension
provides a multitude of resources for home gardeners. Unlike much of the gardening information available to the public, this information is research-based and focused on environmentally-friendly gardening practices.
Who are Master Gardeners?
Master Gardeners are volunteer community educators that are specialists in cultivating plants, people, and communities since 1973. These volunteers are avid gardeners who undergo our intensive training program to become experts about gardening in Jefferson County. They help gardeners find current safe solutions to local gardening problems; make their communities more environmentally and economically viable by teaching people to protect natural resources; and support community food systems through education and garden support. Master Gardeners have access to the experts and research resources at Washington State University.
Jefferson County Master Gardeners are a diverse group of people with a wide variety of knowledge, skills and interests. Our membership is currently over 50 individuals.
Mission: The purpose of the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program is to train volunteers to be effective community educators in gardening and environmental stewardship. Master Gardeners provide information generated from research at WSU and other university systems.
