Extension Master Gardeners (EMG) are trained volunteers that assist County Extension Agents (CEA) with educational programming. EMGs are certified when they have completed the training sessions, homework, passed the comprehensive exam with a minimum score of 75%, and completed 40 hours of volunteer service.
