Master Gardener Volunteers receive training in horticulture through the University of Wisconsin Extension.

In return for their training, Master Gardeners volunteer in UW-Extension horticulture programs and projects which enhance the community. This national program was introduced in Wisconsin in 1977. Find an  overview of the Manitowoc County Master Gardener Program.
