Welcome to Your
Cumberland County
Master Gardeners Association
Promoting Gardening through Education and Service
**********************************************


If you enjoy gardening and want to share your gardening knowledge, the Master Gardener program may be for you.
All you need is an interest in gardening, an open mind, and a willingness to share your knowledge with others.

Master Gardeners share unbiased, reliable, research-based information with home landscapers and gardeners.

The Cumberland County Master Gardeners are trained
and supervised by the UT Extension, a service of the UT Institute of Agriculture 

The training program consists of 18 lecture-learning sessions conducted over an nine week period, generally commencing early in the year. The Trainee Master Gardeners return 40 hours of service  through community and MG Association volunteer opportunities which are coordinated through the Cumberland County Agricultural Extension Service Office. They also must obtain 8 hours of continuing education.  When they have completed that service and education, they become Certified Master Gardeners.  There is an annual re-certification process that requires 8 hours of continuing education and 25 hours of community service.
