University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners have received in-depth horticultural training from university educators and industry experts. In return, they volunteer time to their communities. Master Gardeners in every Maine county are a vital part of UMaine Extension’s ability to provide up-to-date, research-based information, educating the public on best practices in consumer horticulture.
