Educational Programs

Approximately 200 Master Gardener volunteers participate in garden-related educational activities throughout Allegheny County.

Master Gardeners attend a 20 session training program and then “pay back” by volunteering 50 hours in community-based gardening, beautification, and education efforts, including the demonstration gardens listed on this website.

The Speakers Bureau provides your organization or garden club with a 45 minute to one hour presentation by an expert Master Gardener. From a long list, you can select a topic that is appropriate for your group. A fee is charged for this service to help support the many programs that Master Gardeners provide.
