The Hotline Volunteer is trained in the SCMG Hotline Protocol. The protocol document is available in the Hotline Notebook that is stored on the “Casita” desk. Hotline volunteers should contact the Agent and other Master Gardener specialists to provide further information to the client or a need for a Home Visit. In all cases the necessary communication should be managed by the Hotline Master Gardener volunteer.
The SCMG Hotline volunteer service helps to inform and educate the residents of the county on their horticulture issues. Hotline Master Gardener and Intern volunteers benefit from the opportunity to help county residential clients by reinforcing their own diverse knowledge of horticulture issues.
Volunteers: Sandoval County Master Gardener Veterans and Interns volunteer for the Hotline project through the County Extension Service (CES) office. Volunteer time is reserved by the Hotline Calendar. Master Gardeners and Interns may schedule by visiting the Office and choosing dates and times, or by requesting dates and times via email or phone through the Extension Administrative Assistant. Interns should be paired with a Master Gardener volunteer for their first Hotline volunteer sessions for purposes of training and feedback.
Project Meeting Time and Location: The SCMG Hotline is in session from mid- March through mid-October Monday – Friday, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
Hotline volunteers work in the Sandoval County Master Gardener “Casita” Office, located in back of the Old County Courthouse, 711 Camino del Pueblo in Bernalillo New Mexico. The “Casita” is located adjacent to the Sandoval County Extension Service Office exterior entrance. The “Casita” office has access to the CES extension phone, computer, and horticultural reference books and materials.
