What is the Master Gardener Program?

The Master Gardener program and training are conducted by the West Virginia University Extension Service through the county extension offices. The training provides gardeners with the opportunity to improve their horticultural knowledge and skills and to then share their expertise with the public through organized volunteer activities. The program topics covered include: botany, plant problem diagnosis, soils, ornamentals, pest management, fruits, vegetables, and plant propagation.

Becoming a Certified Master Gardener

To become a certified Master Gardener a person must first complete and submit a Master Gardener volunteer application. If the application is approved, the applicant must successfully complete 30 hours of classroom education and then give 30 hours of approved volunteer work to his or her community within one year of completing the classroom work.
