Maricopa County Master Gardeners: Cultivating Plants, People and Communities since 1980:
Master Gardener volunteers are trained by University of Arizona faculty and staff during a 17-week course. They provide educational leadership to the community with research-based horticulture knowledge. Volunteers promote efficient use of water, fertilizers, and pesticides, and preservation of our desert environment.
