Volunteering Examples

Master Gardeners learn by doing.  Volunteering is where classroom knowledge and hands on experience come together.  There are many ways and lots of opportunities to earn Volunteer or Educational Hours as a Master Gardener depending on the activity.  Below are photo examples of Master Gardeners doing volunteer activities.  Not all the approved activities are shown here.  See the MG Volunteer Opportunities page in the Members section for a more complete list.
