Master Gardener Training

Description:
If you have an interest in gardening and would like to volunteer in your community, consider joining the Iowa Master Gardener program. Whether you are a long-term veteran of gardening or a novice, you are welcome to join. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Story and Boone Counties will be offering a Master Gardener training course this Fall. Classes will meet at Reiman Gardens in Ames for all sessions with the exception of one Saturday session that will be on the ISU Campus. The program provides selected volunteers training on many aspects of gardening. In exchange for training, Master Gardeners share their time and knowledge on approved projects within their local communities. Training consists of 40 hours of web based or face-to-face instruction at extension offices throughout Iowa. After training, participants must complete a one-year Master Gardener internship consisting of 40 hours of volunteer service. Additional volunteer hours and ongoing training are required in subsequent years to maintain the Master Gardener status.
