Would you like to know the answers to questions that come along with planting and growing a magnificent flower bed, a bountiful vegetable garden, or flourishing fruit trees, and do you also have a desire to share this knowledge with others? Then you should consider becoming a Master Gardener and sharing your experience and expertise with the inquiring public.
We will be hosting a Master Gardener Open House for prospective volunteers. The Master Gardener Program is currently accepting applications to become a Master Gardener for their 2017-2018 class.
Community volunteers are trained to assist other members of their community with research-based information obtained from Cornell University, other Universities throughout the nation in the land grant system, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The fee is $250. Participants will be refunded $50 upon completion of 100 volunteer hours within the first two years.
