Certified Master Gardeners must volunteer at least 40 hours each year, of which at least 10 hours must be earned in continuing education classes each year to retain their certification.

The sixteen training sessions are held every Tuesday afternoon from 1 PM to 5 PM, mid-January through the end of April. The training site is at the Sandoval County Administration Building, 1500 Idalia RD, Bernalillo, NM 87004.Course instructors include New Mexico State University Extension Specialists, certified Master Gardeners and other regional horticultural experts.
