Master Gardener Volunteer Program

The Master Gardener Volunteer program is an all-volunteer organization sanctioned by Land Grant institutions in each state and functions as an extension of the college or university.  In Wisconsin, the program is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Extension.  Master Gardener Volunteers are trained volunteers who aid University of Wisconsin-Extension staff by helping people in the community better understand horticulture and their environment.
