The 2019 Community Project Kickoff & Registration
Being a Master Gardener is about volunteering with the UW Extension - to educate the public about gardening and natural resources.

Each year, N.E.W. Master Gardeners hold a community project kickoff event where you can meet other Master Gardeners and sign up for projects that interest you. 

If you missed the 2019 event, you can still sign up for a project.  Visit our Volunteer page to see the projects Master Gardener volunteers maintain for your local community!
