The UW-Madison Extension site will provide you with important information regarding the Master Gardener Program and how to volunteer.
You must first be a volunteer of an organization for volunteer service hours to count, and that organization must meet the criteria of UW-Madison Extension federal and state nondiscrimination laws and policies. The organization you volunteer for determines who oversees the activities and you must follow the requirements of the organization.
This website shows volunteer opportunities for master gardeners in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties; however, master gardeners can now volunteer anywhere in the state.
There are a variety of opportunities to choose from: beautifying gardens; growing and harvesting food; garden mentoring; presentations and educational workshops.
