All in-person outdoor and indoor volunteer activity has been suspended until further notice. Volunteer hosted classes may not yet resume in-person even if outside. Remote volunteering is allowed and encouraged at this time. If you must continue to work independently on critical food growing and public space projects please make sure you are using the appropriate hygiene, wearing masks, and maintaining a six-foot distance from others. The 2020 volunteer hours requirement has been relaxed. All active 2020 volunteers will remain active in 2021. All 2019 and 2020 interns will be granted 3 years to meet their initial certification requirements.
Home gardens are important and understudied systems that have an important role in building sustainable, healthy and equitable communities. The UVM Extension Community Horticulture Program (Master Gardener & Composter) trains volunteers and disseminates research-based gardening information throughout Vermont.
