Becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer
Please share your enthusiasm for gardening on our facebook group page. Let us know what you're doing.
The goal of New Hampshire Extension Master Gardener Program is to train and enable volunteers to use research-based information to educate the public about home gardening and horticulture, pest management, food safety and backyard livestock.
In exchange for the training and materials received, Master Gardeners volunteer services in a myriad of venues.
Below are examples on how master gardeners share UNH Extension research-based information with the public:
- at our phone center
- horticultural events
- county fairs and farmers markets
They help create, manage, and write about:
- school gardens
- community gardens
- demonstration gardens
They provide gardening information
- through news and social media
- host workshops, tours, classes and clinics in their communities
