Master Gardners

What is a Master Gardener?

Master Gardeners are volunteer educators for the University of Maryland Extension.  All certified Maryland Master Gardeners receive training from UME faculty, then volunteer to share their knowledge and expertise in their communities.  Master Gardeners combine their love of plants, people, and the natural environment to help others create a healthier world.
