A team of Master Gardeners explain how to join their ranks, what they do, and why it’s important.

The Ohio State University Extension Master Garden Volunteer program provides horticultural training to volunteers. Those volunteers – the master gardeners – then use their expertise to assist with educational programs and activities for Ohio residents (including those at your local library.)

Two more tips for any gardeners out there:

  1. Did you know that you can get free veggie, flower, and herb seeds from our Seed Library? Check out our collection  the next time you visit our Main Branch. Borrow up to 15 packets of seeds per season.
  2. Visit our YouTube channel for more gardening and horticulture programs — including several from our friends and partners, the Lake County Master Gardeners.
