About the Tour
The Washoe County Master Gardener Volunteer program is a public service and outreach program. It is participant- and donor-supported, and is offered by University of Nevada, Reno Extension.
Along with Extension’s mission is to discover, develop, disseminate, preserve and use knowledge to strengthen the social, economic and environmental well-being of people Master Gardener volunteers fulfill this mission by bringing the University to the community. Under the program, volunteers provide community members with free practical, research-based, non-biased information about home horticulture, pest management, sustainable landscape practices and environmentally-sound gardening methods.
Master Gardeners are community members who participate in 60 hours of classroom instruction to learn advanced plant science skills from instruction by Cooperative Extension faculty and staff, Green Industry professionals and other local experts. After training, Master Gardeners volunteer a minimum of 50 hours a year to pass along their newly-acquired knowledge through the media, talks and workshops. They answer phone calls, send out informational materials and educate children and people of all ages on gardening.
