WSU Master Gardener Volunteer Training

January 28 – June 10, 2022
Don’t delay….apply today!

The training class does have a cap and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. If there is still room, the very last date to submit your volunteer application is 5pm on Friday, December 10, 2021. You must be 18 years old or over to apply.

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.
