Thanks to all the MSU EMGs out there doing great work in communities!
If you haven't logged into our data reporting system lately, please do! Try entering some of your volunteer hours. Can't find your project? Search for it in the system. If you still cannot locate it, reach out to the MSUE contact on your home page.

Current Updates (4-27-2022)
We have begun to update our webpages to be more user-friendly and informative to MSU Extension Master Gardeners® and those interested in our program. Thanks for your patience as we do this!
We will be using this webpage for time-sensitive updates/opportunities and creating additional pages to help MSU Extension Master Gardeners® create projects and report hours in the MSU Volunteer Central System (VC). In the meantime, reach out to your local MSU Extension Consumer Horticulture Educator for assistance.
The 2022 hours requirements are 20 volunteer hours and 10 education hours but be sure to check your hour goal in Volunteer Central in the event you are catching up on previous hours, too. Note: Trainees need to achieve 40 volunteer hours to become certified. All hours, EMG or trainee, must be reported prior to December 1, 2022, in order to be eligible to re-certify in January 2023.
Also note that there will be no new MSU Extension Master Gardener® trainings until 2023 as we reformulate our curricula.
