Master Gardener Volunteer Training Course

  • Monday, January 1, 2024, 12:00 PM - 12:00 PM


Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County (CCE of Oswego) offers a Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) Training. The class is primarily held online through Moodle using Cornell’s Garden-based Learning Library to give students greater flexibility with their personal schedules. Students work through the online course material and then participate in group sessions every month, one session held virtually through Zoom and the other in-person. During each session, students will review key knowledge, participate in class discussion, work through hands-on activities, and listen to guest speakers present on various topics.

The MGV training covers all aspects of horticulture and is open to anyone with a passion for gardening and a willingness to volunteer in the community. Students must complete a final project and contribute 50 hours of volunteer service per year. 

If interested in becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer, please contact Joshua Vrooman, Agricultural Community Educator for CCE of Oswego County at or 315-963-7286 ext. 200 to set up an interview.


Currently $200, includes access to course materials from Cornell’s Garden-Based Learning Library
