Master Gardener

The Master Gardeners are volunteers, who have received training through a Florida Master Gardener Program, by the faculty of the University of Florida, through the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

(Sign up to receive an email when our next class is registering!)

The program offers 60 hours of classes in areas such as basic plant science, soils and fertilizers, plant diseases, insect and pest problems, fruit culture, vegetable gardening, landscape care, and nematology. They are supported by, and work under the direction of the UF.IFAS Horticulture Extension Agent as part of the Florida Cooperative Extension Service.
