Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteers (EMGVs) are members of the local community who assist Extension with its horticulture programs. EMGVs assist in teaching other community members, answering questions, and maintaining Extension’s public gardens. N.C. Cooperative Extension staff trains Extension Master Gardener Volunteers. EMGV training covers a variety of topics, including growing fruits, vegetables, flowers, trees, lawns, and more. No prior garden knowledge is required! In return for specialized training, EMGVs dedicate volunteer hours each year to expand Extension’s capacity to educate other gardeners.

Interest sessions will be offered at three Forsyth County Libraries in May, you do not have to attend a session to apply to the program. Registration can be found on Eventbrite, and walk-ins are welcome without pre-registering.
