Becoming a MGV

Becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer

MGV logo

Research shows that people who volunteer live longer, are more physically active, and are happier!  

The Ohio State University Extension Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) program provides intensive training in horticulture to interested Ohio residents who then volunteer their time assisting with educational programs and activities for Ohio residents through their local OSU Extension county office. Volunteers are not required to have gardening skills or knowledge; a passion for learning about gardening and sharing this knowledge with others is a must!
