General Information
Description of ServiceThrough their local outreach, Penn State Master Gardeners educate both youth and adults in communities throughout Pennsylvania. The Penn State University Master Gardener program was established to assist Cooperative Extension in reaching the consumer horticulture audience.

Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by the Penn State Extension. Once they complete their training, Master Gardeners help Extension better serve the home gardening public by answering questions, speaking to groups, working with 4-H gardening projects, maintaining demonstration gardens, teaching plant sciences and horticulture, writing gardening articles, and many other ways. Master Gardeners are willing and able to educate individuals and groups on topics such as vegetable and flower gardening, plant selection, composting and soil health, controlling pests safely, pollinator gardening, pruning, and more.
