Insect, Pest and Disease Control - General Information
The Tennessee Master Gardener Program is a University of Tennessee Extension volunteer program that provides the public with quality home horticulture and gardener-related information through educational programs, examples and demonstrations. Master Gardener volunteers are a diverse group of people with extraordinary talents and abilities which hosts educational and community service projects across the state of Tennessee and the United States. Volunteers are trained with 40 hours of horticultural classes and, in return, volunteers give their community 40 hours of volunteer service through their local UT Extension Office. Master Gardeners are required to maintain a connection to their local UT Extension Office and continue their education annually.
