Master Gardener course

The Tennessee Extension Master Gardeners program in Davidson County offers a unique opportunity for gardeners — young and old, new or experience — to engage in both classroom and practical learning of a wide variety of gardening and home horticulture topics.

UT/TSU Extension Davidson County offers the 14-week Master Gardener course each January. Every week a different topic is presented in a classroom setting by local experts, extension staff and certified Master Gardeners.

As the weather warms and spring approaches, the Master Gardeners of Davidson County will offer supplemental workshops at their five demonstration gardens to those wishing to enhance their learning experience and get to know other gardeners in their community.

Our Mentoring Program also pairs certified Master Gardener with members of the new class to help them achieve their personal learning goals and earn their certification, awarded by UT Extension upon completion of 40 hours of volunteer service and 8 hours of continuing education.
