Master Gardeners are trained by the best....OSU instructors, extension faculty, and local experts. Classroom training (20 classes) is combined with 40 hours of required volunteer time working with experienced MG's in the field. Trainees will graduate and become certified Master Gardeners with an exceptional knowledge base for gardening in our challenging coastal climate.
Certified Master Gardeners can remain active by joining the local MG chapter, and volunteering on projects such as learning gardens, demonstration gardens, horticulture-related community outreach, plant clinics, and events. Continuing education is made available by the OSU Extension Program Coordinator. Successful gardening is a lifelong educational process. Join other folks who have the same interests, and enjoy working together as liaison between OSU and the home gardeners of Clatsop County.
