Master Gardener Program
The K-State Research & Extension Extension Master Gardener program is a volunteer program that provides horticultural training in exchange for help supporting the work of local units. Volunteer expectations vary by local unit and can be adjusted as necessary. Training and volunteer hours are coordinated by local Extension agents. Volunteer activities vary widely, all are educational, Extension horticulture-related, and represent the mission and purpose of KSRE to deliver unbiased, research-based information to
stakeholders in Kansas.
