Master Gardener Volunteers
NC Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are members of the community who have an interest in gardening and a desire to help others. What sets them apart from other home gardeners is the special training they receive from the Cherokee County Extension Office. In exchange for their training, Master Gardeners serve as volunteers for extension horticulture programs.
How Can You Become a Master Gardener Volunteer?
If you have a love of plants and gardening, a willingness to learn more and a desire to give back to your community, you have made the first step to becoming a Master Gardener.
To be certified as a Cherokee County Extension Master Gardener, you will need to complete the training program and volunteer community service hours each year.
It’s so rewarding …and FUN!
Throughout the year the Cherokee County Master Gardener Volunteers participate in many local beautification projects and develop a kinship through monthly meetings, field trips, and social events.
