Who is a Master Gardener?

A Master Gardener is a trained volunteer who aids University of Wisconsin Extension Staff by helping people in the community better understand horticulture and their environment.

Master Gardeners help educate local community members in applying horticultural science to manage their landscapes and gardens in a science-based, sustainable manner
