Frontier Extension District Master Gardeners

2019 Extension Master Gardener Training

Master Gardeners are a vital part of K-State Research and Extension. Donating time in return for horticultural training, Master Gardeners help our county agents meet the need for horticultural information in their communities.

Who can become a Master Gardener?  Anyone with an interest in horticulture can apply for the Extension Master Gardener Program if it is active in your county. If you want to improve your skills and knowledge and you like to work with people, the Extension Master Gardener Program may be for you.  You need to be available for about 40 to 50 hours of daytime training classes your first year.  You must have at least a High School Diploma or the equivalent.  

Master Gardeners Volunteers are asked to give back 40 hours of service and education after completing the training.  Some of these projects may include assisting at the Garden Show, helping with county landscaping plantings, teaching youth about gardening or manning an Extension Horticulture Hotline.

The training dates for the 2019 Frontier Extension District Extension Master Gardener Program are January 5 and 19, February 2 and 16, March 2 and 16.  The training location will be announced at a later date.

The Frontier Extension District is currently taking applications for Master Gardener Training.  The application deadline is November 2, 2018.
