What is the Master Gardener Program?

The Master Gardener Program was first started by Cooperative Extension in the State of Washington in 1972. It grew out of a need to meet an enormous increase in requests from home gardeners for horticultural information. Around the country, Master Gardeners have become a vital part of Cooperative Extension's ability to provide consumers with up-to-date, reliable information. Master Gardening has also become a fun and useful volunteer activity, which has given its participants a sense of community spirit, accomplishment and intellectual stimulation.
