This 13-week training course gives gardeners the opportunity to improve their horticultural knowledge and then share what they learn with the public through organized volunteer activities. Program topics covered include: botany, plant problem diagnosis, soils, ornamental plants, pest management, fruits, vegetables, and plant propagation. Extension staff, Master Gardeners, and local area experts serve as class instructors. Applications for the training course are available each spring and classes begin each August.
