Continuing Education Opportunties

Every year, Master Gardeners participate in 10 hours of continuing education (CE) in order to advance the Master Gardener’s knowledge and understanding of horticulture.

How do I know if an opportunity qualifies for CE credit?

To be counted as CE hours, the classes must be factual, accurate, and provided by a source generally recognized as research based. Most training opportunities offered by educational institutions, public gardens, and education-focused gardening organizations meet this requirement. Sessions offered by entertainers, mass media and sales people are less likely to do so. Listening to radio programs, watching television programs, and reading books do not count as continuing
