Are there master gardeners in the Millcreek Township area?
Rate This FAQ
Master Gardeners are volunteers for the Extension Service. First started in Washington State University in 1972, Extension Agents trained willing and experienced gardeners who provided education and advice, extending research based science advice to the public. The Master Gardener program is in every state associated with their land-grant university and Extension Service. Utah State University Extension began Master Gardener training in the early 1980s based on the model from Washington State. The Master Gardener Volunteer programs are trained and coordinated by USU Extension county offices. In Salt Lake County, we have volunteer programs throughout the county, and though we have 200 Master Gardeners on the roster, many of them are "alumnae" who have gone through the training but are no longer actively volunteering. There are no specific projects in Millcreek and personal information due to privacy issues cannot be release regarding home addresses of Master Gardeners. Active Master Gardeners volunteer at approved Master Gardener projects.
