Master Gardeners: Remember in order to retain your certification you need to report your volunteer and continuing education hours. Guadalupe County Master Gardeners, Interns, and Students must enter their own Master Gardener volunteer and continuing education hours on line.
To retain Master Gardener certification, each calendar year you need to participate in 12 hours of GCMG volunteer activity and 6 hours of continuing education. Master Gardeners should report volunteer and continuing education hours on a monthly basis. This allows the Guadalupe Texas A&M AgriLife Office to report accurate hours, thus keeping track of the excellent programs you conduct. The GCMG’s collective volunteers hours contribute to the sustenance of the Texas Master Gardener Program and the Guadalupe County AgriLife Office.
VMS is user friendly, intuitive, and has many great features. It was developed specifically for Texas Master Gardener Programs.
The new 2021 VMS system is ready for you to access, add hours, and perform other functions just as you did in the old VMS system. Please follow the detailed instructions below to access for the first time.
Once you’ve logged into the system you should update your profile, add a photo, and check to see if everything looks correct.
There are two features still in development and not quite ready:
- The Calendar applications. These will be online soon.
- The export to a PDF document is not functioning yet. We are waiting for a software update on this.
If you have any issues with the new system, it’s important that you submit a Bug Report by using the GET HELP form. Bug reports are critical and any data you can provide would be greatly appreciated, e.g., error messages, exactly what happened, screen shots, etc. You can attach multiple screen shots to the GET HELP form if you like.
Submitting a Bug Report will go directly to our VMS developer and will be answered as quickly as possible.
To access the system, please go to:
You can bookmark that URL but do not bookmark the account homepage/dashboard as it requires a login to render that page properly.
First Time User Credentials
Your username for first-time access will be the “user” half of the email address you used in the old VMS. For example, if your email was firstname.lastname@example.org, your temp username will be “rjjacobdesign”, without the quotes, of course. This username should be submitted as all lower-case characters.
Your one-time, temporary password to access the VMS for the first time is: (contact a board member to text or email you)
This video will demonstrate what to expect the first time you login:
We’ve also created two introductory video demos and put them at GET HELP > TUTORIAL VIDEOS in the main menu above your dashboard. You can access them once you login.
