What is a Master Gardener?
The University of Hawaii Cooperative Extension sponsors the Master Gardener Program. Volunteers are trained to solve gardening problems and give research-based advice to the public through the Master Gardener Plant Helpline, plant diagnostic clinics, presentations on gardening to local groups, and maintaining demonstration gardens at the Urban Garden Center. Our volunteers are trained to help people learn to garden more productively.
