Illinois Master Gardeners

To be an active Master Gardener, you must remain current in annual educational updates, a minimum of 10 hours, and volunteer service hours, a minimum of 30 hours, required by the local program. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are waiving the volunteer hours requirement for 2020. We welcome you to participate in the allowable opportunities for at home volunteering and continue to participate in online continuing education opportunities. Thank you for all you do for your communities!
