Denver Master Gardener Program
The Colorado Master Gardener Program is a community-based, horticulture training and volunteer program through CSU Extension. After completing in-depth training, Master Gardeners help the gardening public solve their horticulture-related problems with scientific, research-based knowledge, while providing meaningful outreach. Currently, there are 125 active Master Gardeners in Denver who engage in over 40 different volunteer projects. Denver Master Gardeners contribute approximately 5,000 volunteer hours and answer about 7,000 gardening questions, annually.
