Colorado Master Gardener   arrow

The Colorado Master Gardener Program is a community-based, horticulture training and volunteer program through CSU Extension.  After completing in-depth training, Master Gardeners help the gardening public solve their horticulture-related problems with scientific, research-based knowledge, while providing meaningful outreach.

Currently, there are 125 active Master Gardeners in Denver who engage in over 40 different volunteer projects.  Denver Master Gardeners contribute approximately 5,000 volunteer hours and answer about 7,000 gardening questions, annually.

If you live in Denver and love gardening and volunteering, consider becoming a Denver Master Gardener!  Applications for the Denver Master Gardener Program are accepted mid-September through mid-October for the following spring.  If interested, contact Merrill Kingsbury.

Want to take the classes but don’t have the time to volunteer?  Consider the Master Gardener CERTIFICATE PROGRAM!
