WSU Master Gardener Volunteer Training

January-June 2020

Applications will be accepted on a first come basis until the class is full or by Friday, December 14, 2018. Don’t delay…. apply today!

Applicants accepted into the WSU Master Gardener volunteer training program participate in 21 weeks of classes in person and at home by using the on-line training program.

Next to digging in the dirt, there’s almost nothing gardeners enjoy more than learning about their favorite plants. One of the easiest ways to increase your gardening knowledge and give back to the community is to enroll in WSU Extension’s Master Gardener volunteer training. For forty five years, Washington State University Extension has been training Master Gardener volunteers in the science and art of gardening.

For complete details including: dates for pre-orientation sessions, application forms, class dates, and cost – visit the WSU Thurston County Master Gardener website

Garden Question/Answer Clinic

Do you have a plant eaten-up by bugs or diseases? Maybe you have a plant or weed you cannot identify? Do you have a problem area in your yard and need advice on what to plant?

That’s where the WSU Master Gardener volunteers of Thurston County can help. You can call or email the clinic with your questions or drop by the office in person to get answers.
