Master Gardener Training
Our training classes are held in the fall. Training is a combination of weekly Zoom classes and in-person events that begin in mid-August and run through mid-November. There are minimum attendance requirements, open-book tests and assigned reading and video watching each week. After finishing training successfully, Interns are required to give 50 volunteer hours of educational programming in our NN programs and activities. Applications are available beginning mid-April through early July. Reach out to us through our Contact Us page if you’d like someone to call you with more information about becoming a Newport News Extension Master Gardener.
