The Fremont County Master Gardener program is a service to the citizens of our county.
The Master Gardener program trains citizens in basic horticulture, entomology, soil science, botany, plant pathology, and pesticide safety.
Each Spring running from March to May, a ten week course takes place. Each session runs 4-5 hours, one day a week. Each beginning volunteer must receive 40 hours of training. The cost of this program currently is $150.
