Master Gardener Application

I would like to be considered for the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program. I understand that if accepted into the Master Gardener Volunteer Program, I am required to complete the scheduled training sessions (approximately 40 hours) and donate an equal number of hours to UNL Extension in approved Master Gardener Volunteer Activities. The volunteer service must be completed by October 31 of the year in which my training was done.

NOTE: Participants not able to complete their volunteer service between the months of March and October of this year should not sign up for the Master Gardener Program.

Note: This application form includes a question about misdemeanor or felony conviction. A criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from being a Master Gardener volunteer. A criminal record will be considered as it relates to specifics of the volunteer position for which the applicant is applying.

Authorization - I authorize a representative of the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Extension office to contact the listed references. I understand that omission or misrepresentation of any information requested is just cause for non-acceptance as a Master Gardener volunteer. If accepted as a volunteer, I agree to abide by the policies of the University of Nebraska Master Gardener volunteer program and those of the University of Nebraska. I understand that after successful completion of the Master Gardening training, I will be expected to devote a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service to Master Gardener program activities during the summer following my training. My submission of this Master Gardener application indicates that I have read and will adhere to the guidelines in the general position descriptions and with the UNL Extension policies regarding Master Gardeners.
