We are Ohio State University Extension trained volunteers empowered to educate others with timely research-based gardening information.


The Master Gardener Volunteer Program on Ohio State University Extension is a premier statewide network of volunteer education and leadership development; as well as a consumer horticulture education delivery system that maximizes human, material, and natural resources, and values teamwork and excellence in educational programming.

Do you enjoy learning and sharing gardening information with others? Do you have time to attend trainings and perform community service? If so, then becoming an OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer offers you the opportunity to embrace your gardening interests and build your leadership skills.

A class for new volunteers was held in 2016 and there are no plans for a class in 2017. Please send a note to Ed Lentz or Bill Jones if interested.
