WSU Master Gardeners
in Spokane County

Master Gardener Volunteers serve as human links between WSU research-based horticulture information and the general public.  Volunteers answer questions about a wide variety of horticulture issues, including plant selection, installation and maintenance; plant problem diagnosis and treatment, environmentally sound gardening practices, pest identification and management, and effective landscaping practices.

Volunteer work includes helping residents in the Master Gardener Plant Clinic and Resource Center, teaching youth, adults and seniors about gardening, researching and writing educational information, staffing information booths at community events, and other activities.

Becoming a Master Gardener in Spokane County involves completing an application packet, being accepted for training, completing an extensive horticulture training program - which includes on-line training and completing weekly quizzes and a final exam - and volunteering 40 hours or more each year. We train a class of new Master Gardeners in even-numbered years and there are usually limited spaces available.
