Idaho Master Gardener Program
Improve Gardening Skills While Helping Others
Through the Idaho Master Gardener Volunteer training sessions, you will gain gardening knowledge on a wide variety of horticultural topics. This knowledge will help you assist fellow gardeners with horticultural questions.
The Master Gardener training program includes 15-20 three-hour classes on a variety of gardening topics.
In addition, participants must complete 30 hours of volunteer service in order to become a certified Idaho Master Gardener. Master Gardeners located in Teton County are encouraged to help us with our Extension and 4-H "Giving Garden," 5th Street Skate Park landscaping and other city landscaping projects in our area.
If you are interested in signing up for the next Master Gardener series, please contact the UI Extension, Teton County office. Depending on participant interest, we hope to offer this course every other year in our county (class size of 10 people minimum). If we do not have enough participant registrations, we offer the six-class High Altitude Victory Gardening series instead. This course is based on the Master Gardener curriculum, but in a condensed format without the volunteer requirements.
