The Purdue Master Gardener Program is an integral part of the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service and provides citizens of Indiana a chance to grow. The program is designed to educate the public about gardening through the use of trained, certified volunteers. The program helps participants grow by providing them with training in horticulture principles. They, in turn, agree to share their knowledge and help others grow.
