Becoming a Master Gardener

The Master Gardener training program offers you the opportunity to benefit from a different expert each class day, plus field trips to enhance what you are learning. In addition, you meet a wonderful group of people with common interests. The training is offered once a year, usually one day a week, January through April..

After training is completed, the Master Gardener Intern completes 50 hours of volunteer service in approved projects. Click here to view a sample of our projects.

While the training is free, there is a charge of approximately $100, based on the cost to the Master Gardeners to pay for the comprehensive reference manual compiled by Virginia Tech University.

Volunteers must complete a background check. Click on the link below to read about the screening procedure.  More information is available at the first Intern training class.

Annual Fund-Raising Activities

The Eastern Shore Master Gardener program is a non-profit organization and each year we hold two fund-raising activities.

Our fund-raising activities are plant sales: the Spring Yard Sale, and the Fall Exmore Yard Sale, both held annually.

The plants sold at these events are grown by Eastern Shore Master Gardeners or donated by local nurseries. Plants include native perennials, annuals, herbs, shrubs and trees. The plants are varieties that are easy to grow on the Shore and each plant has growing instructions included.
