Master Gardener Program:
There are over 65 Master Gardener (MG) volunteers who assist the Rockdale County Extension Office.
Volunteers are committed to gardening and improving the community through programs, plant clinics and horticulture projects. This program is sponsored by the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service.
Certification involves 24 classes, which begin in January of each year. After successfully completing the course, participants must donate 50 hours of volunteer time to the Extension Office to become certified. Applications are accepted in September. Call the Extension Service to register or for more information.
Master Gardeners are available to speak to civic groups on a variety of subjects from dirt to butterfly gardening. To schedule a speaker, call the Extension Service.
