What is the Master Gardener Volunteer Program?

This is a program to train volunteers to assist UW-Extension in its mission to provide community horticulture information and programs. The Master Gardener Volunteer Program was created by Extension to meet an enormous increase in requests from home gardeners for horticultural information. This increase was derived from the urban and transient nature of modern American life. Fifty years ago, an Extension office dealt with the questions of a few hundred farm families. In many regions, however, land that once constituted a single farm now encompasses several subdivisions, increasing the number of families an Extension office must serve. In addition, many of these families are recent arrivals and are unfamiliar with their landscape grasses, shrubs, trees, diseases, etc., which comprise the microenvironment of their new urban or suburban home. They will often call their local Extension office for advice on what to plant and how to care for it. Master Gardener Volunteers have become a vital part of Extension's ability to provide consumers with up-to-date reliable knowledge so they can enjoy and protect the value of horticulture and the environment around their homes. The Master Gardener Volunteer program has also become a fun and useful volunteer network which gives its participants a sense of community spirit, accomplishment, and an opportunity to learn new things.
