Welcome to registration for the 2020 Utah State University Extension Master Gardener Program at Thanksgiving Point. Come learn and grow with us as you make new friends, learn lots of amazing things, gain new skills, and get involved in cool gardening projects in the area! The course fee includes the Utah Master Gardener Manual.

The Master Gardener program develops a network of trained volunteers who provide Utah communities with unbiased, research-based horticultural education and technical assistance in gardening and home horticulture. You'll receive 14 weeks of college-level lecture and hands-on training workshops taught by Utah State University Extension Specialists and Extension Faculty in the following areas:

  • Basic Botany
  • Soils and Fertilizers
  • Irrigation
  • Fruits and Vegetables
  • Trees, Shrubs and Flowers
  • Weed Science
  • Entomology
  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Turfgrass
  • Landscape Design

In addition to the classwork, students are required to provide a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service back to their community to receive their certificate. Most participants in Utah county complete their service hours at Thanksgiving Point on various activities such as helping maintain the Learning Garden or working on any of several volunteer crews in Ashton Gardens. More details on volunteering will be covered during the class.
