MG Training Information: Interested in Becoming a Mason County Master Gardener?

WSU Master Gardener volunteers provide educational programs, free advice and answers to questions on home gardening and landscape maintenance, pest management, and composting to Mason County residents.  Volunteers help at plant clinics, classes, our Catalyst Food Bank and Community Demonstration Garden, garden tours, and our annual plant sale.  To become a certified Master Gardener, participants complete the online and face-to-face training programs and fulfill 60 hours of approved volunteer hours within a year of completing the coursework.  After certification, ongoing volunteer hours are required to maintain status as a Master Gardener.  Being a Master Gardener is an opportunity to improve your own knowledge and support the community!
