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.

Level 1Training is closed for 2018.
