Idaho Master Gardener
The Idaho Master Gardener Program is an intensive 14-week course. It prepares you to assist other gardeners with their gardening and horticultural problems.
The Idaho Master Gardener program requires a commitment of:
- 36 hours of classroom time from mid-January to mid-April. You will be given several open book quizzes and reading assignments.
- 40 hours of hands-on training arranged with a UI Extension educator.
Certification and Credit
Upon completion of the course, Idaho Master Gardeners are considered paraprofessionals in home horticulture.
University credit is available for those interested. Contact Lance Ellis for more information.
We provide free consultations to help diagnose plant issues in your garden or landscape. Samples can be dropped off at our office or you can contact Lance Ellis to arrange for a house call.
