Apply Now to Be a Forsyth County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer
N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center, is now accepting applications for the 2022 Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Initial Training Class.
Extension Master Gardener Volunteers (EMGVs) are integral to Extension’s horticulture programs in Forsyth County. EMGVs are trained to be educators and share their knowledge of gardening with other community members. You do not need to be an expert at the beginning of the training course, but you must be willing to learn and to volunteer your time and energy! The training will strengthen your skills and knowledge of horticulture, as well as prepare you to teach others. Volunteer opportunities within the program include assisting with maintenance at Extension’s gardens, presenting programs to adults and youth, organizing educational events for the community, representing Extension and sharing information at public events, and more.
If you are interested in applying, please visit theCooperative Extension website for all the details and to download an application. Applications are due by Monday, November 8.
