Utah State University Master Gardener Program Overview
The role of Master Gardeners is to assist USU Extension by providing unbiased, research-based horticultural information and education to the community.
Master Gardener Volunteer Program
The "Master" does not mean you know everything about gardening. The "Master" in Master Gardener means you are a horticulture volunteer for Utah State University Extension. The purpose of the Utah Master Gardener Program is to develop a network of trained volunteers who can provide the citizens of Utah with research-based information and technical assistance in gardening and home horticulture.
Master Gardeners may volunteer at several projects throughout Carbon County. The Master Gardener program involves a significant time commitment. A minimun of 40 hours of a college-level horticulture course taught by Utah State University Extension Specialists, Extension Agents, and other expterts and another 40 hours of hands-on volunteer project work to become a Master Gardener.
Carbon and Emery County Master Gardeners meet together between locations in each county. Classroom training begins in January.
