Master Gardener

The Master Gardener program develops a network of trained volunteers who provide Utah communities with unbiased, research-based horticultural education and technical assistance in gardening and home horticulture. You'll receive 14 weeks of college-level lecture and hands-on training workshops taught by Utah State University Extension Specialists and Extension Faculty.

In addition to the classwork, students are required to provide a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service back to their community to receive their certificate. Most participants in Utah county complete their service hours at Thanksgiving Point on various activities such as helping maintain the Learning Garden or working on any of several volunteer crews in Ashton Gardens. More details on volunteering will be covered during the class. Other opportunities are available within Utah County, and participants are allowed to develop their own volunteer project, with approval from the project coordinator.

Due to the uncertain nature of dealing with COVID-19, we are planning on being able to offer the class in a way that will satisfy community social-distancing guidelines as necessary. This means we MAY offer the class in the following formats, or combinations thereof: live in-person classes (preferred method), hybrid classes (alternating in-class with online learning or broadcast classes), and strictly online broadcast (through Zoom). Registrants will be notified how the class will end up being delivered before classes begin.
