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.
Ask a Master Gardener Info Line
Master Gardeners answer the Master Gardener hotline at the Penn State Extension Office in Somerset on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to Noon and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. during the months of May through October.
If you have questions, you may contact them at 814-445-8911 Ext. 7 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
