The Master Gardener Program was created to meet the requests from home gardeners for horticultural information. To become a MG one must successfully complete the in-class training portion of the program and complete a predetermined number of volunteer hours.

Membership in the Northern Kentucky Master Gardener Association is open to any individual, organization, business entity, public agency, or group having an interest in the activities and mission of the Association, without regard to race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin.
