What are Master Gardeners?

  Master Gardeners are volunteer educators who have been trained by Land Grant Agriculture Universities to assist with providing 
information about home gardening. Mississippi State University Extension Service is the branch of MSU that offers the Master Gardener program in the state and is responsible for training and coordinating Master Gardeners. Master Gardeners receive 40 hours
 of instruction in the basics of home gardening. Topics of study include soil, botany, entomology, plant pathology, pest control and plant propagation. 

Specific gardening “crops”studied are turf grass, fruits, vegetables and ornamentals such as flowers, shrubs and ground cover plants.

  New Master Gardeners agree to provide a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer educational efforts within the first year after training.
After that, Master Gardeners work a minimum of 20 hours annually to maintain their status as a Master Gardener. Currently there are 56 Master Gardeners in Warren County.
