COSHOCTON – Do you enjoy gardening? Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Then becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer may be just the thing for you.

The Master Gardener Volunteer Program trains volunteers for Ohio State University Extension to help further the mission of engagement and outreach in Coshocton County. Volunteers are trained in consumer horticulture including: Annuals, perennials, fruits, vegetables, soil, botany, turf, insects, diseases and more.
