Master Gardener Program
Thank you for your interest in the Master Gardener Program in King County.
The deadline for submitting applications for the class of 2015 has passed. Applications for the Class of 2016 will be available on August 1, 2015. Training will be on 12 consecutive Saturdays from January through March. Class sessions are held at the Center for Urban Horticulture on the UW campus located at 3501 NE 41st Street, near University Village in Seattle. Parking is free
Some course work is done online and some is done in class. High-speed access to the internet and an email address are required. Trainees are expected to attend all training sessions. The cost for training will be approximately $275; a limited number of scholarships will be available. You do not need extensive horticulture knowledge to be accepted into the class. We do, however, look for applicants who have a history of volunteerism.
