"Helping Others Grow"

Purdue Master Gardeners are volunteers that "Help Others Grow" in Hamilton County. They are able to assist with any tax-supported agency or organization, based on availability, time of year, and other factors. Most of their work is carried out in Hamilton County although they sometimes are asked to assist elsewhere. They are a publicly trained group whose purpose is to assist the local Extension Educator in addressing the educational needs of the general public as they relate to home horticulture needs. Master Gardeners are not intended to be a source of free labor for private individuals or organizations. For more information on how to become a Master Gardener you can go here.
