Garrett Master Gardeners
Garrett County Master Gardeners are a growing group of Garrett County residents that are interested in expanding horticulture knowledge. Master Gardeners have completed 40 hours of education that was provided by the University of Maryland Extension. These dedicated individuals have worked in the community to donate 40 hours of volunteer service in one year at projects in Garrett County, in order to attain the title of a Maryland Master Gardener.
In order to keep this title, volunteers must donate 20 hours of community service every year and attend 10 hours of continuing education.
Some of the projects include:
- Garrett County Fair Booth
- Plant Clinic at Oakland’s Farmers Market
- Public Presentations
- Restoration Planting of American Chestnut Trees
- Working with School Gardens
