Using the KCMG Website

We use two websites:

mastergardener.tennessee.edu 

knoxcountymastergardener.org

 

mastergardener.tennessee.edu 

This is the statewide website and has many resources that are general to the entire state. We use this website to report volunteer hours.

 

knoxcountymastergardener.org

This is the local website specifically for Knox County Master Gardeners. Here you will find many resources of local interest including an events calendar and a directory of members. This website is open to the public but has a restricted section only for use by UT Extension Certified Knox County Master Gardeners and Interns. You can get access to these private resources by registering on this website.
