Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Program


The Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer (MGEV) Program connects UGA Extension, plant enthusiasts, and communities across the state. MGEVs share UGA Extension consumer horticulture programming about selection and care of plants for ornamental value, recreation, and home food production. Master Gardeners teach community members how to use plants and gardening to improve their environment, personal health, and quality of life.

Glynn County is home to a Master Gardener program that has been running for the last 10 years! Projects that the Glynn Co MGEV have worked on include Horticulture Therapy, Adult Education, Starting a Community Garden, Composting Demonstrations, and more. These volunteers also put in great effort to help homeowners answer their individual questions by performing site visits or responding to calls/emails that come into the Extension Office.

Meet Me in the Garden

Each month, join the Glynn County Master Gardener Volunteers on the first Saturday from 9:00AM-11:00AM. At this event, they will share a brief presentation on a selected topic, provide a tour of projects they are working on in the Madge Merritt 4-H Teaching Garden, and open the floor for questions you may have about your own lawn and garden.

The garden is located at 325 Old Jesup Rd in Brunswick, GA. If you have any questions, feel free to call 912-554-7577 or email


At this time, we are not able to offer the training course to become a Master Gardener. Chatham County Extension office hosts a training each year. You can check out their website and find out if this will be a good fit for you! Glynn County hopes to offer a training course in the near future. Please check back for more updates.
