The Tennessee Extension Master Gardener Program is a volunteer service program that serves state citizens with home horticulture information! The program trains and certifies volunteers who provide community service through county Extension offices. Master Gardeners are trained, certified volunteers for the University of Tennessee Extension County Offices. Tennessee Extension Master Gardeners help the Extension Service share the latest and greatest gardening information!

Why become a Tennessee Extension Master Gardener?  You will receive initial training and education across a range of horticultural crops. This is an opportunity to connect with others who are interested in plants and gardens of all kinds. Opportunities for continuing education in both horticultural and organizational areas and participate in Extension outreach events that impact youth and adults.

Many horticultural topics will be covered to include: plant anatomy, physiology and taxonomy, soils, ornamental plants, edible crops, turfgrass, plant pathology, entomology and pesticide safety.
