Sumner County Master Gardener Programs 

 
The Master Gardener program has a two-part mission:
1)   Increase the horticultural knowledge of participants.
2)   Encourage the sharing of horticultural information through volunteering.
 
The training consists of approximately 15 sessions on different topics, totaling about 40 hours of training.
 
Participants agree to return 40 volunteer hours back to the program in the community plus earn 8 hours of continued education units.
 
Participants become Certified Master Gardeners once the requirements are met. Annual requirements to maintain certification are 25 volunteer and 8 continued education hours.
 
Training sessions begin in mid-January and continue through early to mid-April. The sessions will be held in Gallatin. The training will include weekly sessions on Thursday nights and possibly sessions on a Saturday or two during the period, The night sessions begin at 6:30 pm and end at 9:00 pm. Single Saturday sessions are done by noon.
 
The fee for the class in 2019 was $125 per individual, or $175 for two people in the same household. There may be a small increase in price for 2020.
