YOU CAN BECOME A VOLUNTEER MASTER GARDENER — Sign Up Now for September Program
Anyone with an interest in gardening and a commitment to volunteer service can become a Rutgers Master Gardener. No previous education or training in horticulture is required.
Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who assist the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station through the Morris County Cooperative Extension Service in its mission to deliver horticulture programs and information to the public.
Volunteers learn to diagnose common plant and pest problems, suggest appropriate cultural practices and advise as to the best care for the home landscape and garden. Once trained, they can provide assistance with home gardening questions to residents of Morris County.
They handle only “non-commercial” community gardening questions.
For more information about the program, please visit http://njaes.rutgers.edu/mastergardeners/. For an application or questions about the program, please contact Dave Los at 973.285.8307 or e-mail [email protected].
Morris County residents seeking gardening assistance can call the Master Gardener service at 973.285.8305.
