Learn to be a better home gardener

and steward of the environment this winter with Washington State University Extension’s new online Home Horticulture Training program.

Training focuses on a wide range of horticulture topics taught online by WSU faculty, staff, Master Gardeners, and other regional experts on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon starting Jan. 9 and continuing weekly through Apr. 24.

Homework for each topic is expected to average 3-5 hours a week in addition to the Saturday online class. Homework will include reading assignments, presentations, videos, and exercises all done online through WSU’s Global Campus.

Those wishing to earn a Home Horticulture Training Certificate of Completion will need to attend most classes and take weekly online quizzes and a final, all of which are open book. No memorization is expected.

Important Note: You will not become a WSU Master Gardener volunteer by taking the Home Horticulture Training.  This training is for personal knowledge only and is open to all.  The Thurston County WSU Master Gardener program is not hosting a local volunteer training in 2021.  Information for the 2022 Thurston County WSU Master Gardener Volunteer Training will be available in late 2021 on our WSU Thurston County Master Gardener Training Page.
