This program is one of two ways Marathon County residents can fulfill the horticulture education requirement to become a certified Master Gardener Volunteer. Residents unable to make the local program are encouraged to enroll in Growing and Caring for Plants in Wisconsin: Foundations in GardeningExtension’s statewide virtual gardening program.

Marathon County Master Gardener Volunteer horticulture classes are only available for those who intend to volunteer as Marathon County Master Gardeners in 2023 and beyond. Once the horticulture education requirement is complete, volunteers will need to complete the Master Gardener Program Onboarding Course.

Those interested in in-depth horticulture education with no volunteer expectation are encouraged to enroll in Growing and Caring for Plants in Wisconsin: Foundations in Gardening.
