MASTER GARDENER PROGRAM PURPOSE

Purpose

The Master Gardener program is designed to help educate the public about gardening through the use of trained, certified volunteers. The program helps participants to grow by providing them with training in horticulture principles. They, in turn, agree to share their knowledge and help others grow.

The Master Gardener program was created by the Cooperative Extension Service. The idea originated in Seattle, Washington in 1972 and the first regular training program was conducted by Washington State University during the spring of 1973.

The Master Gardener program is administered in Indiana through the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service. The program in Indiana officially began in 1978 with four counties: Allen County (Paul Hughes), Lake County (John Begeman), Marion County (Dick Crum) and Vanderburgh County (Allen Boger).
