    Master Gardener Program

    Master Gardeners will receive 12 in-depth lectures and hands on training taught by Utah State University Extension Specialists and Extension Faculty. Due to COVID-19 cautions, classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings which will be available as live zoom presentations. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to ask the specialist questions about the topic. There will be 2 in-person Saturday workshops where we will dive into topics like raspberry/fruit tree pruning, and water-wise landscaping.

    After completion of the training, USU Master Gardener students are required to provide a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service to become a certified Master Gardener. Certification allows you to attend future Master Gardener workshops and participate in gardening related classes and volunteer opportunities across Wasatch and Summit County.
