Master Gardener Volunteer Program

Who are Extension Master Gardeners?

The Extension Master Gardener (EMG) program is an educational volunteer program sponsored by K-State Research and Extension. Participants receive approximately 40 hours of horticultural training and, afterward, begin to volunteer their time to educate and advise the public on gardening and horticultural topics. Extension Master Gardener volunteers work closely with local K-State Research and Extension agents to deliver research-based home lawn, garden, and landscaping information to their communities through various educational activities.

Master Gardener volunteer activities include:
  • Planting and maintaining demonstration gardens

  • Garden tours

  • Youth outreach

  • Community events

  • Public presentations

  • Plant sales

How to get involved

If you are interested in becoming a Golden Prairie District Extension Master Gardener, please contact our office (785-743-6361). Classes begin in the early fall of each year.
