2016 Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program. 

The Purdue Master Gardener Program, sponsored by Purdue Extension, is a volunteer training program designed to meet the gardening information needs of the community. The purpose of the program is to teach people more about growing plants and to more effectively provide plant-related information. Specifically, the program aims to provide information and technical assistance about gardening and home horticulture through trained and certified volunteers.

To become certified as a Purdue Master Gardener, participants must complete the Purdue Master Gardener Basic Training program and contribute a minimum of 35 hours of volunteer activity on behalf of the Purdue Master Gardener Program. If you would like to learn more about gardening and give back to your community this is a great program for you. The 2016 volunteer training program starts in late January.
