Louisiana Master Gardener and Advanced Louisiana Master Gardener volunteers, under the direction of local coordinators, complete tens of thousands of hours of volunteer service annually. For 2018, 1,407 volunteers logged a total of more than 17,800 continuing education hours. Volunteer service hours for 2018 totaled more than 77,000 hours, for an economic value of more than $2.03 million.
Over the past several years, Louisiana Master Gardener programs have continued to expand volunteer recruitment efforts in terms of reaching a wider range of ages and ethnicities. Participation in the program offers something for everyone, and we welcome new individuals bringing unique perspectives into the mix. The Louisiana Master Gardener program is a place for volunteers to have a fun, educational experience while serving the community in which they live.
