The University of Vermont Extension Master Gardener Course is our 16-week online signature course. It covers the fundamentals of home gardening including basic botany, soil fertility, insects and diseases, vegetable planning and production, herbaceous perennials, small fruit and tree fruit, pollinator plants, tree care, landscape design, and volunteerism. Content is specific to Vermont growing conditions. 

The registration fee for the course is $550 for those participants who do not live in Vermont (this course requires students to access an Extension Master Gardener manual, available from PennState for $75 plus shipping).

Please note that the registration for participants who live outside Vermont is currently only open for "Learn at Your Own Pace" (Track 2) students.

Registration for the 2023 course runs through January 18, 2023. The course will start on Jan 20 and course materials will be available to registered participants through May 25, 2023. The final date to drop out of the course and request a refund is Friday, January 27, 2023.
