Please note: This year, the Master Gardener Volunteer Hours requirements are waived. No volunteer hours are required to to maintain your certification due to the COVID-19. You can still record hours in the online system and they will become a part of your lifetime totals, but will not affect certification this year. In addition, as a Master Gardener volunteer, we are under the UW-Madison and Extension expectation requirements. That being said, the “Guidelines for staff and volunteer activities will be decided upon by Extension administration) and will be forwarded when it is becomes available.” This is per Mike Maddox.
Please note you ARE REQUIRED to complete your educational hours to maintain your certification. Ten hours must be completed by October 1st, 2020 to be in compliance. (Note- Master Gardener interns, you would already have these hours based on attendance at your Level 1 classes)
