Across North Carolina, over 3500 volunteers with the NC State Extension Master Gardener℠ program work under the leadership of Extension agents to strengthen and expand Extension’s delivery of science-based gardening education to North Carolinians.

Their efforts connect people with the benefits of gardening and empower North Carolinians to cultivate healthy plants, landscapes, ecosystems, and communities.


Master Gardener volunteers share their knowledge to help North Carolinians learn and grow. Learn more!
