The Coshocton County Master Gardener Volunteer program ended in early 2024 due to declining membership. For more than 20 years, dozens of Coshocton County Master Gardener Volunteers educated gardeners and homeowners about unbiased, research-based best practices and provided beautiful spaces throughout our communities. OSU Extension is grateful for the thousands of volunteer hours that were given. The volunteers’ service, hard work, and dedication to this program have made Coshocton County a better place to work and live.

If you are interested in becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer, you may participate in a program offered in a nearby county.

There are also local horticultural organizations in Coshocton County.

  • Coshocton in Bloom- email
  • The Coshocton County Herb Society – contact them via Facebook. Meets the third Wednesday of each month at Emmanual Lutheran Church at 7:00 PM.
  • Town and Country Garden Club - email . Meets the second Thursday of the month.


The Ohio State University Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program provides intensive training in horticulture to interested Ohio residents, who then volunteer their time assisting with educational programs and activities for Ohio residents through their local OSU Extension county office. Volunteers are not required to have gardening skills or knowledge; but a passion for learning about gardening and sharing this knowledge with others is a must!

Working with county Extension personnel, Master Gardener Volunteers provide such educational services to their communities as: answering gardening questions from the public; conducting plant clinics; gardening activities with children, senior citizens, or disabled persons; beautifying the community; and developing community or demonstration gardens.
