Master Gardener Program

Thank you for your interest in the Master Gardener Program in King County.

The applications for the 2019 Master Gardener training class will be available online on August 1 and due by the posted October deadline.

In King County, Master Gardener in-class training is held one day a week on Saturday for 12 consecutive weeks from mid-January through March. Course work is done both online and 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 $300, and scholarships are 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.

Master Gardener trainees must complete 40 hours of volunteer service in their first year. Each year the Master Gardener must submit a recertification request and complete 25 hours of volunteer service in that year to maintain veteran status. Most volunteer activities take place on weekends from spring to early fall. Applications will be available online in August. Download this brochure for more details.
