Master Gardener Program

The Master Gardener Program is an Educational Outreach Program that is part of the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension System.  The program started in 1978 and consists of horticulture training and an outreach component that focus on the community at large.  Master Gardeners are enthusiastic, willing to learn and share their knowledge and training with others.  What sets them apart from other home gardeners is their special horticultural training.  In exchange for this training, Master Gardeners commit time as volunteers working through their local Cooperative Extension Center and the Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford to provide horticultural-related information to the community
