Master Gardener Course

The Tennessee Extension Master Gardener training program is designed for anyone interested in gardening, from beginners to experienced gardeners.  Volunteer-based service training is provided with the goal of certifying those whoi complete the program so that they can provide the public with research-based information on a variety of horticultural topics.

UT/TSU Extension Davidson County

During the 13-week course, a different topic will be presented in a classroom setting by UT Extension staff, certified Master Gardeners and local experts.

As the weather warms and spring approaches, the Master Gardeners of Davidson County will offer supplemental workshops at their five demonstration gardens to those wishing to enhance their learning experience and get to know other gardeners in their community.

Upon completion of 40 hours of volunteer service and 8 hours of continuing education, class "interns" will achieve certification awarded by UT Extension.
