OSU Master Gardener Program

I got this email and am passing it on to you! Don’t miss out!

Fall Greetings from Oregon State University!

You are receiving this email because you are on our Master Gardener™ Online mailing list. We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for our January 2010 Master Gardener™ Online basic training course. This popular online class is capped at 35 students (for each of the options below), and has historically filled within the first two weeks of registration. To ensure your spot, register online now and pay in full by December 16.

Note: For past and current Master Gardener™ Online students, please forward this email on to a friend or colleague who might be interested.

The winter course runs January 11 – April 12, 2010, and includes two options:

  1. Option 1 (No volunteer hours): Earn your Certificate of Home Horticulture by taking the Master Gardener™ Online basic training course. This option costs $490. Submit your online Option 1 Registration Form now. We must also receive payment from you in order to be considered registered in the class.
  2. Option 2 (Volunteer option): Earn your Master Gardener™ badge by taking the Master Gardener™ Online basic training course in addition to completing volunteer hours. Volunteer hours must take place in participating Oregon counties. This option costs $390 and requires submitting an online Option 2 Volunteer Application Form and receiving acceptance into the program. Volunteer applications are due by November 9. Accepted participants will be notified by November 30 and then directed to an online registration form.

For more information on the options above, and the Master Gardener™ Online program, visit our website. For questions, please contact OSU Extended Campus at 800-235-6559 or email

    Hi Amy~~ I’m curious as to which course you’ll be tackling. I must admit to a bit of sticker shock as the prices have risen dramatically even with volunteer hours. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on the course. Hope you’ll post them as it progresses.

    Yeah, the price is part of the reason why I’m not doing the program this year (the other is just no time), it’s just not possible unless I wanted to live in a tent lol
