Educational Programs:

Master Gardener Program

The Oahu Master Gardener program disseminates horticultural information to the gardening client through phone consultation, plant clinics, demonstrations and e-mail. Walk-ins are assisted on Wednesdays and always welcomed. 

Volunteers assist with Farmer's Markets, community promotions, the farm fair, and health fairs. 

Master Gardeners are adults (18 years and over), who love gardening, want to learn and to share their knowledge with others through volunteer educational services. Master Gardener volunteers are an important Extension resource for expanded outreach into the community. The trained Master Gardener volunteers help Extension to meet the overwhelming demand for research based horticultural and gardening information to the public.
