Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program

There is still room, and still, time, to enroll in the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program! The program starts in January 2024.

Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program begins January 8, 2024, and will run for 16 weeks. The training will take place weekly on Mondays via Zoom and will include monthly hands-on sessions.

If you have a passion for gardening, like to increase your knowledge about gardening, and enjoy sharing this knowledge with others, give us a call or send us an e-mail to learn more about the program. Any level of gardening knowledge is fineā€”the training will get you started or add to your knowledge base. The training begins in January, so contact the office soon for more information and/or to receive an application. It is presented by many knowledgeable and experienced horticulture educators and experts. For more information, please contact the CCE Master Gardener Volunteer Program in Warren County: 518-623-3291.

Volunteer Commitment

Each Master Gardener trainee commits to "give back" an additional 80 hours of service over a one-year time period following training for a total of 140 hours altogether. Then a minimum of 20 hours per year.
