Meet the NH Master Gardeners

Through community projects, public presentations and our UNH Extension Infoline, Master Gardener volunteers bring education about gardening, plants, soil, insects and more to the people of New Hampshire. 

Dedicated Master Gardener volunteers answer home and garden questions big and small each weekday at the UNH Extension Infoline. Get to know the volunteers —and learn how you too can become a Master Gardener.
