How to Become a Douglas County Extension Master Gardener

How Do I Become a Master Gardener?

Requirements: No prior experience with plants or gardening is necessary – just a willingness to learn and share with others through various Extension Master Gardener projects. You need to be available for about 55 to 60 hours of training classes your first year (~42 of which are online). You must have at least a High School Diploma or the equivalent. The fee is approximately $100.00, but if this is a hardship we have a few scholarship spaces. We only have space for 30 trainees. 

When: Thursdays, September through December from 1:00 to 4:00 PM CST (online)

Additional sessions will meet in-person at the Douglas County Extension office.

K-State Research and Extension is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by contacting Sharon Ashworth at least two weeks prior to the start of the event at 785-843-7058 or Requests received after this date will be honored as soon as it is feasible to do so.
