Maine Master Gardener Volunteers
It takes a passion for green and growing things, and interest in sharing your enthusiasm for gardening with friends, neighbors, and the community to be a Master Gardener Volunteer.
Master Gardener Volunteers enjoy helping to create beauty in public as well as private spaces and helping others learn how to grow their own food.
We are young and older; male and female; students, workers, and retirees; and we all share an interest in nature, the environment, and growing things.
If you are not yet a Master Gardener, learn how you can become one by applying to the York County Master Gardener Program. Then you, too, can become a Master Gardener Volunteer.
Who Can Become a Master Gardener Volunteer?
Everyone who successfully completes the forty-plus hours of training, and volunteers at least 40 hours towards community gardening programs and activities can become a Master Gardener. The participation fee covers the cost of the reference manual, handouts, and training expenses.
