Master Gardeners

SDSU Extension’s Master Gardener program develops gardening enthusiasts into experts who share their research-based knowledge with community members across the state. Each year, Master Gardeners volunteer more than 10,000 hours answering your questions and hosting programming. 

I love working as a volunteer with SDSU Extension as a South Dakota Master Gardener.  My mind is stimulated with the up-to-date horticulture information provided which fuels my teaching portfolio which in turn connects me to my community.

— Sue W. White, President, SDMG Association
