Becoming a Master Gardener
& Joining the RCMGA

Becoming a Master Gardener is a journey that starts with a desire to learn and grow. This begins with the application and acceptance process. You start as an intern, until you have met the full Master Gardener requirements. After acceptance as an intern, you begin participating in our comprehensive training program to qualify as a Master Gardener, which covers a variety of gardening and plant science issues, from site analysis and plant propagation to pest and disease management, and much more. Once completed, our scholarship opportunities help make it possible for everyone to get the education they need to become a successful gardener. With the support of our experienced and passionate team, you'll be able to grow the garden of your dreams.
