What is the Master Gardener Program?

The WSU Master Gardener Program is a nationally recognized program that trains volunteers to serve their communities through horticultural education and outreach. Once volunteers receive training, they provide educational information to the public in home and subsistence horticulture including vegetable and fruit gardening, lawn and landscape maintenance, composting, native plants, plant problem diagnosis, pest control and many other concerns.

Read about the WSU Master Gardener program vision, mission, values and critical areas addressed by the program here.
