Become a
Master Gardener


The Ohio State University Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program provides intensive training in horticulture to interested Ohio residents, who then volunteer their time assisting with educational programs and activities for Ohio residents through their local OSU Extension county office. Volunteers are not required to have gardening skills or knowledge, but a passion for learning about gardening and sharing this knowledge with others is a must!

Delaware County has an active Master Gardener Volunteer group of 95 members from all walks of life.  You don't have to be a professional to join our group.  All you need is a passion for learning about gardening and sharing your knowledge with others.  You will be able to network with other Master Gardener Volunteers and be exposed to many educational opportunities to enhance your love of horticulture.  

A DCMGA member has completed the required OSUE educational course work, has the title of Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) by OSUE or any other state, has completed all required volunteer hours and continuing education hours during the preceding year, be current in payment of the OSUE Master Gardener fee, and comply with OSUE Policy Statements and Standards of Behavior, Pest Management Information Policy and Volunteer Agreement.
