Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in growing flowers, vegetables, fruits, shrubs, trees and lawns.
Master Gardener trainees attend 40 hours of classes taught by Iowa State University Extension staff and specialists in topics ranging from lawn care, flower and vegetable gardening, ornamental trees and shrubs, fruit crops, and houseplants to insect, disease, and weed control, soil and plant nutrition, and pesticide safety.
In exchange for training, participants are asked to volunteer 40 hours of service to their local extension program. Master Gardeners may choose to answer telephone requests for gardening information, staff plant clinics or displays, speak to local groups, teach youths, provide horticulture therapy activities for the elderly, and supervise or judge county fair horticulture activities as judges or project coordinators.
