Roanoke Master Gardeners are specially trained volunteer educators. We volunteer through and work on behalf of Virginia Cooperative Extension, the community engagement branch of Virginia’s land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University.

Master Gardeners answer questions, deliver programming, and act as resources for reliable horticultural knowledge. Whether solving landscape challenges, identifying insects and diseases, planning gardens, or helping you to grow your own food, many turn to Roanoke Master Gardeners for expert knowledge, practical experience, and reliable, research-based information.
