Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are an elite group of individuals that receive comprehensive educational, hands-on, classroom training from the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service in consumer horticulture. Volunteers receive training, pass a comprehensive exam, and then complete a forty (40) hour internship under direction of County Extension Agents to earn their Extension Master Gardener Volunteer certification. Volunteers are then asked to give back to the community by disseminating research-based, unbiased, educational material to the general public through speaking engagements, educational classes, EMGV Hotline, farmers markets, and other Extension sponsored events.
