ABOUT MASTER GARDENERS:
The WSU Extension Master Gardener program began in 1972 in King County, Washington. The program now exists in all 50 states and many other countries. The King County Master Gardener program is one of the largest in the world.

Master Gardener volunteers are trained para-professionals who work in the community as horticulture advisors and resources for home gardeners. Originally focused on diagnosing plant problems, the program now also offers proactive educational programs that address critical issues such as water quality protection and safer pest management practices. Master Gardeners work with all citizens, including children, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.
