Master Gardener Training Program

The University of Illinois Extension is accepting applications to participate in the 2015 Master Gardener Training Program. Those interested need to complete an application form and return it to their local county extension office.

Master Gardeners are individuals with an interest in horticulture willing to participate in 60 hours of classes taught by University of Illinois Educators. Then they agree to volunteer 60 hours of time through their local office to teach others about gardening.
