Master Gardeners are volunteers who have been trained in the finer points of gardening to improve their own knowledge and to share it with others. Master Gardeners provide free, research-based horticulture information to Nevadans. As volunteers, Master Gardeners contribute volunteer hours every year through a variety of projects, including but not limited to: answering telephone and email inquiries, staffing booths at fairs and home shows, conducting educational presentations in the community and consulting at school and community gardens.
Below are a few of the many volunteer projects Master Gardener volunteers are involved in.
The 2024 Plant Sale will be Friday, May 17th from 2 - 6 pm & Saturday May 18 from 9 am - 1 pm at the University of Nevada, Reno Extension Washoe County Office 4955 Energy Way Reno, NV 89502.
Master Gardener's grow plant starts in a greenhouse at the UNR Experiment Station for local community members to purchase. We focus on plants and varieties that grow well in our local conditions and help you get your garden started. The Master Gardener Program is basically self-funded, and this is one of the ways we help finance our program. Thank you the huge community support we receive annually around this project.
Please join us Tuesday evenings from 6 – 8 pm in February and March (except for election day) at the Bartley Ranch Regional Park for the University of Nevada, Reno Extension Washoe County Master Gardener program's "Gardening in Nevada: The Bartley Ranch Series". This free event requires registration and is hosted by Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, people with a passion for gardening, who live right here in Northern Nevada and enjoy sharing their knowledge.
