Rutgers Master Gardener Volunteers
Who are they? A group of volunteers trained in horticulture by Rutgers Cooperative Extension personnel to provide outreach educational programs to home gardeners in their community.
What do they do? These volunteers learn about horticulture, staff the Rutgers Master Gardener Helpline, and work within their communities to educate the public on horticultural and natural resource issues.
Where do they work? Volunteers work throughout Gloucester County on various gardening activities. (See below.)
Upon completion of their training Master Gardeners are asked to volunteer 60 hours within one year of completing their training and 20 hours annually to remain active.
