VCE Loudoun is proud to announce nineteen new graduates into the Extension Master Gardener program. The inaugural class of an all virtual training in 2021, the graduates completed over 60 hours of instruction and 75 hours in their internship with COVID-19 protocols followed. The new Master Gardeners stand ready to continue to educate Loudoun in best management practices for environmentally sound and sustainable landscapes.
Extension Master Gardeners are volunteer educators who work within the communities to encourage and promote environmentally sound horticulture practices through sustainable landscape management, education and training. As an educational program of Virginia Cooperative Extension, Extension Master Gardeners bring the resources of Virginia’s land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, to the people of the commonwealth.
Classes start in January and the class of 2022 is full. Applications for the Master Gardener Class of 2023 will open online in mid-August, 2022. All info to become a VCE Loudoun Master Gardener can be found here.
