Wakulla Master Gardeners
Don’t miss the opportunity to join our 2015 Master Gardener class!

There is still time to register for the 2015 Master Gardener Class in Wakulla County!

(Class is now closed to new applicants.)

The program begins this Thursday evening, January 29, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. and is open to everyone who wants to learn more about the many topics in horticulture.

The Florida Master Gardener Program recruits individuals who are interested in gardening and enjoy sharing what they learn with others. Participants complete the training course sponsored by the University of Florida and the local county Extension office.

Requirements for applying to become a Master Gardener:

  • Complete a Master Gardener Application
  • Pay $65 fee
  • Bring your filled-out application and $65 to the Wakulla Extension office

In return for their training, new Master Gardeners serve 75 volunteer hours and participate in 10 learning hours within the first year of their certification. Certified Master Gardeners work through the county Extension office to educate Floridians and provide research-based information about gardening, America’s most popular pastime.

Master Gardeners can fulfill their volunteer hours in a variety of ways, including:

  • answering horticultural questions over the phone, in person or through a regular newspaper column
  • participating in community and school garden projects
  • giving educational programs to the public
  • supporting youth activities
  • performing soil sample evaluations
  • certifying Florida-friendly yards through the Florida Yards & Neighborhoods Program
