How do I become a Georgia Master Gardener Volunteer:

Georgia residents may have the opportunity to become a Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer in their home county. Classes usually form either in the spring or fall. Interested volunteer candidates should contact their local county Cooperative Extension office to see if an active program exists and when the next class will be taught. It is possible to join another county’s program if one does not already exist in your home county, though many programs are not able to accept all applicants due to lack of space space in training classes. Preference is usually given to volunteers from the training county and if accepted from an outside county, volunteers will be expected to complete their volunteer obligation in the training county. Upon acceptance into the program volunteers will be required to complete a 40 hour (usually once or twice a week) classroom training program that will cover topics ranging from landscape design, plant propagation and turf, to different programs such as nuisance wildlife control. Again, the intent of the program is to train volunteers in subjects that will prepare them to assist the local county Extension Staff. Participants take a mid-term exam and will be required to pass a final exam on the material covered. For more information contact your local county Extension agent. To connect to the Cooperative Extension office in your county call 1-800-ask-uga1 or click here to find your county office.
