Become a Master Gardener Volunteer

Interested in becoming a Master Gardener? Join us for a Community Forum to learn about the Master Gardener Volunteer program with Cornell Cooperative Extension- Cattaraugus County

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cattaraugus County is accepting applications for their next Master Gardener Volunteer Program class. Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who work in partnership with the Cattaraugus County Cooperative Extension staff to teach and share gardening knowledge countywide. They are neighbors teaching neighbors about horticulture using researched-based gardening practices through a variety of educational programs and activities. The Master Gardener Program has an emphasis on environmental stewardship and on food insecurity. One way Master Gardeners contribute to addressing food insecurity locally, is by supporting the National Seed to Supper program that helps teach residents how to grow their own vegetable gardens.

If you love gardening and are interested in giving back to your community- in a green-thumb way- please join us at one of our community forums to learn more!
