About the Master Gardener Program
What is the Master Gardener program?

Master Gardeners are volunteers who have been trained in the finer points of gardening to improve their own knowledge and to share it with others. Master Gardeners provide free, research-based horticulture information to Nevadans. As volunteers, Master Gardeners contribute 50 hours per year in a variety of projects, including answering telephone inquiries, conducting plant clinics, performing soil tests, staffing booths at fairs and home shows and consulting at school and community gardens.
