Become a Master Gardener

The 2015 Delaware Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Training Program is scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. from Wednesday, September 2 through Monday, November 23. Most training will be held at your county Extension Office. Some training sessions will require travel to another location to learn with your fellow trainees from the other two counties. Carpooling is encouraged.  As a member of the 2015 Delaware Master Gardener training class, you are expected to complete the course of study, volunteer 40 hours, and gain an additional 5 hours of advanced training by November 1, 2016, to become a Master Gardener.  Please reference the MG Training Program Frequently Asked Questions document for additional information.

Applications have already been accepted and reviewed for the 2015 training year.  Congratulations to our 2015 Master Gardener Trainees; we look forward to working with you this year!
