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 North Dakota Extension Service in providing scientifically accurate and environmentally sustainable horticultural advice. Are you ready to be extraordinary?

Master Gardener Program

 There will not be a 2017 entry level Master Garden course, but get geared up to join us in January 2018 for a new take on Extension Master Gardener! To be reminded of registration opening for our January 2018 MG Core Course offering please submit your request

2016 Award Banquet Held

The 2016 volunteer hours were tallied and totaled, summing over 10,000 over service and 1,800 hours of education within Extension Master Gardener. The Volunteer Recognition luncheon was held in May to both thank and honor our outstanding volunteers. Please, read more about it in our News section!
