You might be wondering why this record keeping is all so important. We must measure the impact we are
having on the citizens of our county and state. We can’t let all the good work that you are doing go unnoticed.
By filling this information in accurately when the work is performed, monthly and yearly reporting will be
much easier, accurate and less time consuming. Some counties collect data from their volunteers monthly,
others do not. All counties collect the annual report and submit a consolidated report to the State MG Program
office. If you do not keep a record of your work and turn it in to your county Extension office, you will not be
certified or re-certified as a Master Gardener.

   Date: Date you performed volunteer work.
   Project #: Use one of the numbers listed under Project numbers on the front of the sheet.
   Hours Worked: List the time you worked on the project including travel time to and from project.
