Orange County Master Gardener Volunteer Informational Meeting

May 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us for an informational meeting to learn how to become an Orange County Master Gardener Volunteer!

Do you have a love for gardening and giving back to your community? Are you interested in meeting like-minded garden-loving people while serving the residents of Orange County? The Master Gardener Volunteer Program is an outreach program composed of UF/IFAS Extension certified volunteers who are trained to provide research-based horticultural education to Florida residents.
Due to class capacity, only 20 participants will be selected to participate in the training program each year. This class is an opportunity to meet the Master Gardener Volunteer Coordinator and ask program related questions. This is an on-going volunteer program with the training program intended for candidates looking to stay involved after their certification. Please read this blog post for frequently asked questions and detailed program information: https://blogs.ifas.ufl.edu/orangeco/2024/04/02/ocmgv-2024-recruitment/
