Master Gardener Program

Master Gardener Volunteer Program

Master Gardeners are volunteers who provide garden and landscape information to area residents. They work with children and adults on numerous UW-Extension projects and gardens in Racine County.  They are trained through UW-Extension and must pass a criminal background check, sign a behavior agreement form, and complete the WI Mandated Reporter Course in order to enroll in Level 1 Training.

Visit the Wisconsin Master Gardener web site to learn more about this statewide program.
