Colorado Master Gardener Volunteers assist Colorado State University Extension staff in delivering knowledge-based information about home gardening to foster successful gardening.  Participants receive intensive Colorado Master Gardener Training during the 10-week course.

The Colorado Master Gardener (CMG) audience is exclusively home gardeners. CMG volunteers serve by answering gardening questions, staffing diagnostic clinics, teaching gardening classes, writing newspaper articles, and mentoring community gardening and greening projects.
