The Maine Master Gardener Volunteer program provides participants with more than 40 hours of in-depth training in the art and science of horticulture. In addition, the program trains volunteers to conduct and join sustainable horticulture projects in their communities.

Trainees receive the latest research-based information from UMaine Extension educators and industry experts.

As part of a nationwide Cooperative Extension effort, Master Gardeners are recognized as well-trained practitioners who serve and beautify their communities. They are linked to a professional network of support through county, state and national Cooperative Extension offices. Kennebec County is committed to building a sense of community for the volunteers by providing access to:

  • Volunteer opportunities that make a positive impact in the community
  • Fun social gatherings such as potlucks and┬álocal trips
  • Continuing education events and workshops
