The Idaho Master Gardener Program is an intensive 14-week course. It prepares you to help other gardeners with their gardening and horticultural problems.
The Idaho Master Gardener Program requires:
36 hours classroom time
From mid-January to mid-April. You will be given several open book quizzes and reading assignments.
40 hours hands-on training
Arranged with an Extension educator. Much of this time will be spent helping out in the Master Gardener room. There you will answer gardeners’ questions through the summer months with the assistance from an Advanced Idaho Master Gardener.
Certification and Credit
Upon completion of the course, master gardeners are considered paraprofessionals in home horticulture. University of Idaho credit is available for those interested.
Application and Class Forms
Updated forms will be available when the Idaho Master Gardener Program is next offered.
