Become a Master Gardener

We offer Level 1 Training once a year, in Spring. Graduates of Level 1 are able to immediately begin volunteering for our core projects. Once they complete their required annual of volunteer service and continuing education, they receive certification as a Master Gardener. To maintain certification, Master Gardeners must contribute at least 20 volunteer hours and 10 hours of continuing education annually.

Cost of Level 1 Training: $150. The course spans approximately 14 weeks. It includes multi-media presentations, hand-on exercises and lectures by the experts. Students will receive a Master Gardener Manual and access to online materials.

Orientation for Level 1 Training will be February 11, 2020, with once-weekly sessions beginning March 10, 2020. and running until early June.  Training will be held primarily in Cedarburg, at the Ozaukee County Fairgrounds Pavilion.
