The Master Gardener program originated in the University Extension Center of Seattle, Washington in 1972. With a rising interest in home gardening, the Extension staff trained local gardeners as volunteers to help answer the public's horticultural questions. The program has grown to exist in all 50 states and six Canadian provinces.

Master Gardener training will be held in Knox County beginning January 2015. For more information please contact Amy Pickrel,
