The Master Gardener Program administered by The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension in Cochise County is a partnership between Cooperative Extension and volunteers enrolled in the program. Cooperative Extension trains, certifies, and supervises Master Gardener volunteers who help Cooperative Extension provide research-based information on home horticulture to the public that is endorsed by The University of Arizona.

The Master Gardener Program is first and foremost about volunteer service.

The purpose of the Master Gardener Program is to train a knowledgeable corps of volunteers who can assist the County Extension Agent in educating the public about gardening, food production, landscaping, and environmental stewardship appropriate for Cochise County.

An individual who participates in and successfully passes the 14-week course studying botany, soils, pest management, vegetables, fruits and nuts, and other related topics becomes a Master Gardener Associate.

A Master Gardener Associate is obligated to pledge 50 hours of approved volunteer service back to the Cooperative Extension within one year of graduation. After completing the 50 hours of volunteer service, a Master Gardener Associate becomes a Master Gardener. To remain certified, Master Gardeners must complete 25 hours of approved volunteer service and 12 hours of approved continuing education annually.

Upon completion of the Master Gardener course, each graduate will receive a packet containing the Master Gardener Program Policy, Memorandum of Agreement, and a volunteer form, which lists the current volunteer opportunities available.

If you are unable to commit to the Master Gardener program, but wish to obtain the information, you may purchase The Arizona Master Gardener Manual through the Cooperative Extension Distribution Center by calling (520)-621-1713. The center is located at 4042 N. Campbell, Tucson, AZ 85719-1111. The Arizona Master Gardener Manual is also available, free of cost, on-line.
