Apply to Extension Master Gardener volunteer program
August 15, 2022 @ 8:00 am - October 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Apply now through Oct. 1 to become a University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener volunteer. The University of Minnesota has trained thousands of Master Gardeners; each year, they contribute more than 140,000 hours of service in Minnesota communities. This year, the training will be all online and spread out over 14 weeks, making the program more student-friendly than ever. To become a Master Gardener, individuals commit to complete online training and 50 hours of volunteering in the first year. After the first year, they commit 25 hours to annual volunteer work; many choose to devote more time to the program. Master Gardeners come from all ages and backgrounds.
