To become certified as a Master Gardener Volunteer, individuals must complete the Level 1 Training course, pass the Level 1 exam, and complete and report a minimum of 24 hours of approved volunteer service during their first year in the program. You can learn more about the training on the separate Training Page. To maintain certification, at least 10 hours of continuing education and 24 hours of volunteer service must be completed annually.
As a member of SouthEast Wisconsin Master Gardeners, you will volunteer with Waukesha County and Milwaukee County UW-Extension educational programs in horticulture and community service. Visit the Wisconsin Master Gardener website for other Wisconsin training locations.
