Extension Master Gardener Program
The North Dakota Extension Master Gardener Program is not an ordinary education program. An ordinary class 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 the Extension Service in providing scientifically accurate and environmentally sustainable horticultural advice. Are you ready to be extraordinary?
2015 Master Gardener Core Course (for new students)
2015 Master Gardener has wrapped up! We had over 100 students participating this semester and thank you all for joining us. Also, a very special thank you to our county Agents and Adminstrative Staff for all of the assistance. If you would like to join Dr. Esther McGinnis next time the course is offered, please email to be added to the reminder list.
2015 Volunteer Season Closes
Those who've completed their internship this season can expect a certificate via mail in January 2016. 34 of ND's 53 counties turned in volunteer hours and/or continuing education hours this year. We more than TRIPLED our produce donations to those in need, added 500 more hours of education, and nearly doubled the amount of volunteer time donated by our Certified Master Gardeners (4,426 total hours).
