News Release

Interested in Becoming a Master Gardener

If you are interested in attending a Master Gardener Training in 2018 please fill out the survey located at and your local Extension Staff will contact you with further information.  A location, times and dates will be determined from this survey.  Master Gardeners are adults of all ages who love gardening and have a passion (or interest) for plants. You can become a Master Gardener if you are 18 years or older, willing to learn about horticulture and share this knowledge with others, and volunteer your time back to educational programming coordinated through your local Extension office.  For more information contact, Susan O’Connor at the Carroll County Extension office at 815-244-9444 or Liz Sosa at the Ogle County Extension Office at 815-732-2191.
