Become a Master Gardener!

It is nearly time for a new class of Master Gardeners, a program through New Mexico State that provides a lot of service to our community.  Would you please put this announcement in your neighborhood association newsletter, or in some other way get this news out to your community?  Following the article are two images that you could use as desired.  Thank you very much!

Would you like to improve your gardening skills and knowledge while volunteering in our community? Then, you might want to consider becoming a Master Gardener!

Every year the Albuquerque Area Extension Master Gardener program welcomes a certain number of interns to participate in this program. The fee for attending this program is $150. Interns will access classes online weekly (January – April) and provide 40 hours of volunteer time at pre-approved volunteer activities.

A meeting will be held in October 2023 to provide more information regarding the application process, program requirements, and program activities. Please visit our website periodically as we will update you about the date, time, location for the meeting, and other information related to the 2024 Master Gardener Program.
