Master Gardeners Community Garden Plot

Who We Are

The Master Gardener Program was first started by the Washington State Cooperative Extension Service in 1972. It grew out of a need to meet an enormous increase in requests from home gardeners for horticultural information and education. Master Gardeners have become a vital part of Extension’s ability to provide consumers with up-to-date reliable information. Master Gardening has also given its participants a sense of community spirit, accomplishment and intellectual stimulation.

How Does the Program Work

Cascade County MSU Extension teach a series of classes to train volunteers in unbiased, research-based, home horticulture practices. There are three levels to the Montana Master Gardener Program. Level 1 Extension Master Gardener course will teach basic yard and garden installation, vegetable and flower gardening, and yard and lawn maintenance. Level 2 offers more advanced gardening knowledge that will give you the tools you need to solve your garden and landscape problems. The Level 3 Master Gardener course is specialized advanced training offered on the Montana State University campus in Bozeman, MT.
