Master Gardener Volunteer Training Course

  • Saturday, January 27, 2024, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Applications now being accepted!

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County (CCE of Oswego) will be offering a five-month Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) Training. The class will be primarily held online through Moodle using Cornell’s Garden-based Learning Library to give students greater flexibility with their personal schedules. Students will work through the online course material and then participate in two group sessions every month, one session held virtually through Zoom on Wednesday evenings and the other in-person on Saturday mornings. During each session, students will review key learning objectives, 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 you are interested in becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer, please contact Joshua Vrooman, Agricultural Community Educator at or 315-963-7286 ext. 200 to set up an interview.
