Florida Master Gardener Conference

Each year, Master Gardeners from all parts of Florida converge to network and catch up with the newest happenings in Florida gardening.

Master Gardener volunteers are recognized at the annual state conference for both their years of service and with specific awards.  The success of the Master Gardener Program would not be possible without the volunteers' great contributions.  We thank each of our volunteers and especially recognize those who go above and beyond in their volunteering capacity.

The classes that you will be attending are advanced Master Gardener topics in the areas of wildlife and invasives, soils and diagnostics, horticulture and gardens, Florida-Friendly Landscaping™, and more. There will be great new things to learn and training to brush up on, too.
