Extension Master Gardener Program

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 North Dakota Extension Service in providing scientifically accurate and environmentally sustainable horticultural advice.

Are you ready to be extraordinary? To be informed of our next MG Core Course offering please submit your request

Master Gardener Certification Season

Master Gardener Interns and Certified Master Gardeners have recorded hours of hard work through research and teaching, food pantry donations, and presence in their communities. Please, join us in celebrating our ND Extension Master Gardeners. The amount of donated hours and pounds of fresh food donated grow each year, and this year was no exception! Look for finalized totals to be posted soon.

Members, if you are moving from an intern to a Certified Master Gardener, expect your certificate in the mail in January. If you have met the 2016 recertification guidelines (12 hours of volunteer service, 8 hours of continuing education) look for your certificate in the mail in early February.
