Program Priorities

The WSU Master Gardener Program addresses nine important sociologic and environmental issues by teaching research-based horticulture information. We want people to have important skills and abilities that help mitigate challenges and to understand that everyone has a role to play in creating and sustaining healthy and resilient communities.

Our Program Priorities define the intersection between horticulture and our natural resources or community needs. They guide our daily work and help to focus our efforts. They are issues that the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program volunteers are trained for and are poised to address. WSU Extension Master Gardener volunteers are university trained volunteer educators who teach research-based horticulture skills and practices for the development of sustainable landscapes, for the protection of our natural resources and for the improvement of the health and wellness of communities.
