Purpose:
WSU Master Gardeners educate their communities about gardening and environmental stewardship, using research based information.

We educate on sustainable landscape practices, healthy living through gardening, limiting the impact of invasive species, and addressing environmental issues of concern, such as water conservation.
Volunteer Opportunities:

Master Gardeners are required to complete 40 hours of volunteer time every year, with 20 of those hours as staff in our Plant Clinic. 10 additional hours of continuing education are also required. Our trainees are given a comprehensive 16 week training that takes place online and at class meetings. After they complete their first year of volunteer work, they are certified as Master Gardeners.

Trainings are held in even numbered years from January through April; applications to the program are accepted in the Fall of odd-numbered years. Check our website for more details.
Annual Events:
Our Garden Fair & Plant Sale takes place in the Spring of each year and is our largest outreach and fundraiser. It usually occurs on the last Saturday in April, from 9 am-2pm.

We teach public education classes including Beginning Gardening, Grow Your Own Food, Water Wise, and Specialty Landscaping annually, check our website for details Spokane County Extension

Our Fall Banquet celebrates the garden season with an evening of education, food, and fun.  Past speakers have included garden advisor Ciscoe Morris, as well as writer and plantsman Dan Hinkley. 

Cabin Fever is a day long series of classes usually held in March.  It is designed to prepare and inspire gardeners for the upcoming season.  More details can be found at:  Master Gardener Foundation
