Educational Programs - Oxford County Master Gardener Volunteers
Becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer takes a passion for green and growing things, and interest in sharing your enthusiasm for gardening with friends, neighbors, and the community.
Master Gardener Volunteers enjoy helping to create beauty in public as well as private spaces, and helping others learn how to grow their own food.
We are young and older; male and female; students, workers and retirees; and we all share an interest in nature, the environment, and growing plants.
