Our Program

Master Gardeners are university-trained volunteers who serve as educators in their communities. The Master Gardener program originated in Washington State to enable WSU Extension to better serve the public — specifically home gardeners.

The Yakima County Master Gardeners are active in presenting garden programs, developing community gardens and sharing gardening knowledge.


Our Foundation

The Master Gardener Foundation of Yakima County is instrumental in providing funding to advance the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program and education through horticultural-based research generated through Washington State University and affiliated university systems.

With our foundation’s help, the 120 Master Gardeners of Yakima have the resources to make our county a better, more environmentally sound place to live.
