Once certified, Master Gardeners are invited and encouraged to join the Master Gardeners of Hamilton County to maintain their certification and become part of a strong community organization with a commitment to public service.

Certified Master Gardener volunteers assist UT Extension staff by sharing research-based information with the general public. They also offer many educational programs throughout the community and provide countless hours of volunteer service.
