Extension Master Gardener & Pro-Hort Course Information

Master Gardener Program

The NDSU Extension Master Gardener Program is not an ordinary education program. An ordinary course would teach you the basics of horticulture. The Master Gardener program goes beyond ordinary and invests in creating leaders to serve the needs of their communities. Master Gardeners become ambassadors to assist NDSU Extension in providing accurate and environmentally sustainable horticultural advice. Are you ready to be extraordinary?
