Utah State University Extension Master Gardener Program

The purpose of the Utah State University Extension Master Gardener Program is to develop a network of trained volunteers who can provide Utah communities with unbiased, research-based horticultural education and technical assistance in gardening and home horticulture.

Master Gardeners receive 14 weeks of college-level in-class and hands-on training taught by Utah State University Extension faculty and specialists. To become certified, USU Master Gardeners are required to provide a minimum of 40 hours of approved volunteer service back to their community. All are welcome to participate in the Utah County/Thanksgiving Point program even if they are unable to volunteer. Classes in Utah County generally run from mid-January through mid-March.
