Apply to be a Master Gardener

THANK YOU for your interest!

The application period has ended for this year. Please consider putting your name on our interested applicant list for 2016.

  1. Review the Position Description to see if this is the right opportunity for you!

The Process: We accept applications, and, based on those, invite some for interviews. We notify all applicants via e-mail. After interviews, final accepted interns will be e-mailed the Master Gardener class registration link and are required to register by the December deadline, attend a December orientation, and in the subsequent year complete 50 volunteer hours in Ramsey County projects and attend 4 Ramsey County Tuesday evening meetings. (After your intern year, Ramsey County Master Gardener annual requirements are to complete 25 volunteer hours and 12 education hours minimum.)

More Information on the 2015 University of MN Extension Master Gardener Class:

Class fee is normally $575, but accepted Master Gardener interns pay only the materials fee of $275 and may choose to take the class either online or in-person. (The online class meets weekly, but students may choose to move faster, as modules are posted well in advance.)

Want to take the class for personal enrichment (and not volunteer)? Visit the above class page in November and select the 'ProHort Students' button on left. Full fees apply.
