Master Gardener Volunteer Training Starts February 2014
The Master Gardener Program of Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension is planning a Master Gardener volunteer training to start in February 2014. The Master Gardener Program is a national program of trained volunteers who work in partnership with their county Cooperative Extension office to expand the agency's educational outreach by providing home gardeners with research-based information.
Master Gardener trainees should have a basic knowledge of gardening, enthusiasm for acquiring new knowledge and skills, good communication skills, and have the willingness and time to participate in volunteer activities.
Classroom training will take place Thursday evenings, 6:00-9:00 pm, in Ithaca, from early February to mid-April. Hands-on, practical gardening skills will be taught in garden settings over the spring and summer, then classes will resume Thursday evenings in the fall.
