What is a ​Master Gardener?


     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 M.S.U. that offers the Master Gardener program in the state and is responsible for training and coordi-nating 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. The average tenure of a Master Gardener volunteer in Mississippi is four years.
   Currently there are 62 Master Gardeners and 9 Interns in Warren County. Statewide, there are about 1,050 Master Gardeners in 58 participating counties.
