Tennessee Extension Master Gardener Program

The Tennessee Extension Master Gardener Program is a volunteer program that serves state citizens with horticulture education.

The program trains and certifies volunteers who provide community service through county Extension offices. Master Gardeners are trained, certified volunteers for the University of Tennessee Extension county offices.

Tennessee Extension Master Gardeners (TEMGs) are trained volunteers that help Extension share the latest and greatest gardening information. All volunteers are trained with forty hours of horticultural classes and return forty hours of volunteer community service through their Extension office.

The Master Gardener Program is offered by UT Extension. Its main goal is to increase the availability of horticultural information to improve the quality of life with community garden/landscape programs.

The Junior Master Gardener Program is a rewarding program for kids who are interested in gardening education.
