Master Gardener Program
Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Cooperative Extension. Once they complete their training, Master Gardeners help Extension better serve the home gardening public by answering questions, speaking to groups, working with 4-H horticultural projects, participating in civic beautification, maintaining demonstration gardens, teaching plant sciences and horticulture, maintaining this web site, and in many other ways.
Master Gardener volunteers are interested in teaching others to garden, receive 20-30 hours of gardening educaton & then are responsible to give 50 hrs. of serviced back to the community teaching the public to be better gardeners. These Master Garden volunteers maintain the county demonostration garden on Fourth Street in Towanda, and teach classes from it during the growing season. Stop in anytime during the gardening season for a visit. Master Gardener trainees & volunteers learn proper growing/planting techniques and then pass these techniques on to neighbors, firend, and the public in general.
