If you have ever considered becoming a Master Gardener, now is the time! Master Gardeners are dedicated individuals who train under extension faculty and then serve as volunteers in the community educating residents on Florida-friendly landscaping and horticulture. Projects include assisting residents with their landscape problems, giving presentations to groups, maintaining demonstration gardens and increasing environmental awareness through the operation of the Panhandle Butterfly House. Benefits of being a Master Gardener include exclusive continuing educational opportunities, comradery with like-minded individuals and satisfaction in making our community a better place.
