Are you interested in learning more about gardening and horticulture on the Eastern Shore? Do you long to grow vegetables or fruits but don’t know where to start? Or what types of plants grow well on the seaside?
If you are among the many local residents who enjoy gardening but who want to learn more, the Eastern Shore Virginia Master Gardener (ESVMG) program is for you.
Master Gardener volunteers receive 50 hours of intensive training in all areas of Eastern Shore horticulture, sponsored by the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
After completion of training, each Master Gardener volunteer educator selects from a wide variety of activities designed to provide the public with current, reliable information on Shore gardening and horticulture.
Learning, volunteering, and sharing your knowledge offer great personal rewards—join our group of men and women of all ages in these satisfying activities.
