A passion for gardening

Master Gardener organizations are a network of associations throughout North America who share a passion for gardening.

Volunteers dedicated to providing horticultural information to the public run these not-for-profit organizations.

Check out more information on how to become a Master Gardener in your area through the Atlantic Master Gardener Association:  “Master Gardeners in Training must successfully complete an educational component in addition to meeting the required annual volunteer hours (25 a year) for two years and 8 hours of continuing education every 2 years before they can become certified as Master Gardeners.”
