Classes

The Sandoval Extension Master Gardeners offer a variety of classes, for master gardeners and the public. Classes are offered at various times and locations. Some require a fee while others are free. For some classes space may be limited and pre-registration advisable.

Intern Training Classes

Each year a 15-week training session is offered for those wishing to become Master Gardeners. The classes are held Tuesday afternoons from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm from February to May. These classes are based on material developed by New Mexico State University and are intended to provide a basic understanding of horticulture. Attendance in these classes is limited to those who have been accepted into the Intern Training Program and Veterans.

SEMG will be doing live virtual classroom or pre-recorded lectures due to COVID-19.

Master Gardeners are required to obtain at least 10 hours of continuing education each year. NMSU professors and others provide Continuing Education classes. Any of the following classes can be counted toward Continuing Education Hours. Veterans may also attend the Intern Classes.
