There is a growing interest among Master Gardener volunteers in the use of sustainable and non-chemical solutions for pest control. A holistic pest management program was designed to provide unbiased, research-based information and resources that would support the educational efforts of Extension and these volunteers. The results of pre- and post-survey instruments, completed by 54 volunteer participants, identified knowledge and attitude changes, as well as instructional areas needing modification. The framework of this program has allowed for replacing emotion with science and offers flexibility for adapting the program to suit the audience.
