What do I have to do to become a Certified Master Gardener?

The primary responsibility of Master Gardeners is to answer questions from area residents about home horticulture, and to recommend environmentally sound solutions to gardening and landscape problems. County Extension Agents and Master Gardeners are available to help and advise as needed. To become certified, you must complete the minimum 50 hours of training and complete at least 50 hours of volunteer service within one year of training. At the completion of all the requirements, you receive an official Master Gardener certificate and name badge.
