Become a Master Gardener in 2023!

In person and online based classes begin in February, with the hybrid model allowing for people with full time jobs and families to participate. This is a new for 2023, with the goal of bringing in new members and experiences!

Classes are taught by OSU experts and experienced Master Gardener Volunteers. These classes contain research based, locally relevant information to train you in teaching and garden questions in our community!

Volunteer hours are a key learning experience in becoming an OSU Master Gardener. In 2023 we are requiring 40 hours of volunteer service for new gardener’s. All volunteer experiences are carefully selected to help you learn and engage with the community. These include: volunteering at Plant Clinics answering community garden questions, teaching classes, hands on work in The Dalles Imagination Garden (The DIG), and more!

For more information Contact Us!  Applications will be available mid-October!
