The Yamhill County Master Gardeners Association is a group of gardeners
who volunteer their time to promote the best practices in gardening.
We are certified by Oregon State University Extension Service and have
been trained to deceminate science based gardening information.
Here’s what OSU has to say about the program:
The Oregon State University Master Gardener™ Program is an Oregon State
University (OSU) Extension Service program that educates Oregonians
about the art and science of growing and caring for plants.
This program also facilitates the training of a highly educated corp of
volunteers. These volunteers extend sustainable gardening information
to their communities through education and outreach programs.
Master Gardeners are trained volunteers, educated through OSU Extension
Service to offer the local community Reliable, Relevant and Reachable
gardening information and education opportunities.
Reliable: our gardening advice and education is science-based.
Relevant: customized information for your gardening situation.
Reachable: Call us on the phone, email us a question, or visit
with us at markets or gardens in your community.
What We Do and Where We Work?
In 30 counties across Oregon, Master Gardener volunteers answer gardening
questions at OSU Extension offices, at community Farmers’ markets, and at
Master Gardener events. Volunteers create and manage demonstration gardens,
school gardens and community gardens. They host garden tours, workshops
and classes in their communities.
