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?
