Teaching

The Master Gardener Program is designed to prepare local gardeners to teach the communities of Idaho. Click here to find helpful tips on adult and youth education, finding local clubs and municipalities, preparing good presentations, writing a good article, and conducting yourself during a news interview.

Serving

As a Master Gardener you are asked to be visible in your community.  You can do this by organizing a community beautification project with the city council, church, home owners association, etc.  Click here for forms, worksheets, designs, and a list of requested projects and contacts for developing projects.

Reporting

The Magic Valley Master Gardener Program is piloting a reporting system for Service Hours.  You are encouraged to keep your hours on the forms provided as a back-up.  However, all Master Gardeners need to report their hours to the new system beginning in January.

Meeting

The Magic Valley Master Gardener Association is based in Twin Falls, Idaho.  The Twin Falls and Mini-Cassia Associations meet regularly in their respective counties.  They are both well-organized and have great leadership! The speakers and tours are wonderful and are well worth your time and dues.
