Master Gardener

Master Gardener

University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners are volunteers who provide service to a community by sharing their special interests in horticulture and the skills they acquire in Master Gardener training in various ways. They answer plant and gardening questions from home owners, help design and operate exhibits, displays and demonstrations, and make presentations to both large and small groups.

2018 Master Gardener training will be held at John A. Logan College: Mees Center, on Tuesdays from January 30th-April 17th. Class sessions will run from 9:00am - 4:00pm. If you are interested in becoming a Master Gardener, please print and fill out the application and background check forms. Application deadline is January 16th. You will be invited to an informal interview after your application has been processed. Once accepted, a $200 registration fee will be due, which covers the cost of the training and Master Gardener Manual.
