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 who complete the program so that they can provide the public with research-based information on a variety of horticultural topics.
During the 8-week course, a different topic will be presented in a virtual classroom setting by UT Extension staff, certified Master Gardeners and local experts. There will be a minimum of 18 topics presented during the 8-week course.
As the weather warms and spring approaches, the Master Gardeners of Davidson County will offer supplemental workshops at their five garden projects 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 additional hours of continuing education after classes, class "interns" will achieve certification awarded by UT Extension.
