About the
Colorado Master Gardener Program


  • Colorado Master Gardener Volunteers assist CSU Extension staff in delivering research-based information about home gardening to foster successful gardening.

  • Annually, 1,350 CMG volunteers serving in 36 county-based programs generated $1.3 million in volunteer time.

  • CMG volunteers serve by answering phone calls and emails at County Extension Offices, staffing diagnostic clinics, teaching gardening classes, writing newspaper articles, and mentoring community gardening and greening projects. The Colorado Master Gardener, CMG, audience is exclusively home gardeners.
  • This no-frills web site provides support to home gardeners and CMG volunteers searching for research-based gardening information.

  • Colorado Master Gardener Training is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Colorado Garden Show, Inc.
