How to Become a Master Gardener

Becoming a master gardener is not as hard as you might think.

The Anne Arundel County Master Gardener Program is now accepting applications for the Fall 2011 training program, to be held on  Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at Anne Arundel Community College, Arnold, MD.  Applications must be received by August 1, 2011.

In addition to the 40 hours of classwork with Maryland Cooperative Extension professionals, you must complete 40 hours of volunteering… And that’s all there is to it!

As a master gardener, you will be a volunteer representatives of the University of Maryland, educating others about effective and sustainable horticultural practices and landscaping problem-solving.  Be the star of your garden club, as one of the few people around who have earned this designation!
