The Louisiana Master Gardener Program is represented at the national level by the National Extension Master Gardener network.
Our National Mission: Extension Master Gardener programs educate people, engaging them in learning to use unbiased, research-based horticulture and gardening practices through a network of trained volunteers directed and supported by land-grant university faculty and staff.
The Extension Master Gardener national mission statement and program standards were developed by the Extension Master Gardener Task Force in 2013 and adopted by the Extension Master Gardener National Committee in January 2014.
Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens.
