Improving Our Community Through Horticulture
Becoming an Extension Master Gardener
Shawnee County Extension Master Gardeners spend more than 10,000 hours every year disseminating research based information to Shawnee County residents. Our volunteers plan, plant and maintain eight demonstration gardens, give programs at the Topeka and Shawnee County Library, answer questions at local Farmer's Markets and on our Response Line and host many community events. Extension Master Gardeners are teachers in our community!
The application process opens May 6th, 2023 and all applications are due July 28, 2023. Please read all program materials including information about course formatting and time commitments carefully before applying.
