Knox County Master Gardener Volunteer training will be held May-June 2021.
Becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer is an ongoing process. Your contributions to the community start during the initial course. Afterwards, you will have the skills and knowledge necessary to strengthen your relationship with the environment and the community.
To become a Master Gardener Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to complete 50 hours of classroom training and make a difference in your community by donating 50 ours of your time to service. Once you have completed these hours you will then be an official Master Gardener Volunteers.
In addition to learning the various topics, you will be able to practice your skills through many volunteer opportunities. You will have exposure to information from current research and success to specialists at The Ohio State University.
As Master Gardener Volunteers, we provide several resources and events for the community to help educate the public on the importance of horticulture and the issues surrounding it.
We provide annual programming for the community including events and workshops.
As Master Gardener Volunteers, we explore our deep horticultural roots to learn about the land on which we live the importance of preserving its beauty. We do not take without giving back, whether its form the Earth or in our own community. We strive to preserve the natural beauty of our community while sharing our love of gardening.
