Costs

The Home Horticulture Certificate is a new pilot program through University of Nevada, Reno Extension’s Washoe County Master Gardener Program. This program includes the science-based classes but does not require any hands-on volunteer service.

It is a voluntary educational program best suited for those interested in in-depth horticultural science content, and the entry point for those who would like to become a Washoe County Master Gardener Volunteer. The Home Horticulture Certificate may be right for you if you are:

  • Are new to Northern Nevada and want to learn more about the science of gardening;
  • Interested in expanding your own gardening knowledge and applying it to your own projects; and/or
  • Don’t have time for or any interest in volunteering.

The program starts August 27, 2019 and ends September 24, 2019.

  • 4 Tuesday afternoon lectures (12:30 pm to 3:30 pm);
  • 4 Thursday afternoon lectures (12:30 pm to 3:30 pm);
  • 1 Tuesday afternoon exam (12:30 pm to 3:30 pm).
*Must attend all sessions to obtain the Home Horticulture Certificate.*
