Master Gardeners

University of Maryland Extension (UME) Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who combine their love of plants, people, and the environment to help residents in their communities solve problems and make environmentally-sound decisions.

The Home and Garden Information Center partners with the Master Gardener Program to provide educational resources to the volunteers as well as digital resources through the Home and Garden website.
