Master Gardener Volunteers are trained volunteers who aid University of Wisconsin-Cooperative Extension staff in helping communities better understand horticulture. The purpose of the Wisconsin Master Gardener Volunteer Program is to provide unbiased, research-based horticultural information to the citizens of Wisconsin through Master Gardener volunteers. 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.
