The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Master Gardener program will hold its core training sessions this fall for individuals interested in becoming Master Gardeners.

The Master Gardener program is looking for people who are passionate about volunteering and gardening. No previous garden knowledge is required. The program equips volunteers to grow in knowledge about gardening best practices. After the training, Master Gardeners volunteer in their community, making significant contributions such as giving produce to food banks for food security and making Iowa’s fairgrounds and main streets beautiful.

Master Gardener training sessions will be held across the state beginning in August and running through November. There will also be a training session on Saturday, October 10th held on campus at Iowa State. Training fees are $195.

Those interested in the course can apply at https://mastergardenerhours.hort.iastate.edu/application-form.php.  Applications for the Master Gardener Program are due by August 3rd.
