Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who aid the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Division of Extension staff by helping people in the community better understand horticulture and their environment. Master Gardeners receive horticulture training from UW-Madison, Division of Extension specialists and faculty and local experts. In return for their training, Master Gardeners volunteer in UW-Madison, Division of Extension educational programs and horticulture projects which enhance the community.
