An individual can only use the title of Master Gardener Volunteer when:
- They are a member in good standing. This means that they have completed the training course, volunteered a minimum number of hours, and passed the final exam. Each year following the initial training, a person must attend a minimum of 10 hours of approved horticulture education sessions and volunteer 24 hours of approved service to their community or the Extension office.
- They are performing volunteer tasks for Extension. The Master Gardener Volunteer title can only officially be used when working on UW Cooperative Extension approved volunteer projects. They cannot receive remuneration for these projects. It is permissible at any time or place for an individual to say that he/she has completed the Wisconsin Master Gardener Training Program. However, they can only answer questions and perform tasks representing themselves as a Master Gardener Volunteer when they are actually volunteering for UW-Extension. Master Gardener training and experience may be given as qualifications when seeking employment. However, once employed, Master Gardener credentials should not be displayed. MGVs are advised not to advertise as Master Gardener Volunteers in their names or places of business, nor be listed as such in business advertising. The name or MG logo cannot be used for personal gain, including influencing anyone to do business with them.
The Master Gardener Program relies on the public’s ability to easily recognize their services and products. To help our clientele and the public recognize the scope and nature of our mission, it is important that we convey a unified, cohesive image.
The logo should only be for approved MG volunteer activities, programs and events. It cannot be used for commercial purposes or personal gain. Please refer to www.wimastergardener.org for complete details on using the MG logo.
