University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners are a special group of people who all have a common interest – a love of gardening and nature and the desire to share that knowledge with others. The Master Gardener Volunteer program aim is to give intensive horticultural training to individuals who will, in turn, share this training with the public. 

Each Master Gardener volunteer participates in 60 hours of initial training. The classes will be held at various locations throughout the four-county area. Training sessions include lectures, discussions, hands-on activities, and field trips. 

  • Classes will be held April 17- June 19, 2018. 
  • The fee for those who wish to volunteer is $250. This covers training and the Master Gardener Manual.
  • Registration will close on March 23, 2018.
