Do you have an interest in horticulture and want to learn more?
Are you looking for a way to improve your community through volunteer service?
Do you enjoy teaching and talking to the public?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes,
Master Gardener volunteer opportunities may be right for you.
Virginia Cooperative Extension-Master Gardeners come from all walks of life. They are a group of enthusiastic
volunteers linked by their love of gardening. Master Gardener volunteers donate 20 hours of their time a year to provide gardening and horticulture expertise to our community. Their expertise is drawn from their training, their rich personal experiences, and the research of Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, Virginia’s land grant universities.
Master Gardeners work to improve their community by supporting the concept of sustainable landscape management which
is the responsible use of natural resources in a manner that is environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable.
