Wednesday, September 11 2013 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Do you have a love of gardening, landscaping or just have knowledge that you’d like to share with others? Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension is planning a Master Gardener training to start September 11, 2013. The classes will run approximately 8 weeks and will be held on Wednesdays from 9AM to 3:30 PM at the Agriculture Experiment Station in Geneva.
The cost of this year’s classes will be $150.00. This cost will include your Master Gardener Manual, handouts, refreshments, speaker’s fees, travel costs, and administrative fees. The training is taught by Cornell University professors and other professionals in the horticulture field. A commitment on your part for 50 volunteer hours over a two-year period is also required. These hours can be completed with such projects as: speaking to gardening groups, answering questions on the Horticulture Hot Line, working with 4-H youth, booth participation at the Seneca County Fair and Empire Farm Days, writing articles or radio spots.
The Master Gardener program is a national program of trained volunteers who work in partnership with their county Cooperative Extension office to educate the public. The program possibilities are only limited by the volunteers imagination, so come and be trained and start helping to shape the Master Gardener program in Seneca County!
