About Master Gardeners


Who We Are

Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners are trained volunteer educators who provide science-based horticultural knowledge to our community. Members of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Master Gardener (ESVMG) serve Accomack and Northampton Counties on the Eastern Shore.

What We Do

We educate the public to improve and sustain the quality of horticultural practices in these ways:

  • answering individuals’ gardening questions
  • a weekly radio program of gardening interest
  • conducting plant clinics and educational forums
  • beautifying the community through demonstration gardens
  • performing other related services and activities to sustain the quality of horticultural practices

If you are interested in learning more about how to become a Master Gardener here on the Eastern Shore please visit our Get Involved page to find out more.
