Master Gardener volunteer, Sandi Rousseau, provides plant information to 2022 Master Gardener Plant Sale customers.

Do you love plants, gardening and sharing knowledge? If your answer is yes, then consider becoming a Central Gorge Master Gardener.

Master Gardeners are volunteers who serve the public by sharing research-based home gardening information. You don’t need to be an expert, just passionate about plants. You’ll receive training that shows you everything you need to know, and other Master Gardeners will help you every step of the way. Classes take place February through April 2023 on Wednesday evenings and select Saturday mornings. The Master Gardener training program is a hybrid of in-person classes, online lectures, webinars, and workshops. Volunteer opportunities include working in project gardens and at community events.
