The program is open to anyone who has an interest in expanding their gardening experience and knowledge. Attendees will learn how they can improve their own gardens and landscapes; and learn scientifically-based gardening information in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. The program is a great way to learn even more by sharing information with fellow-Master Gardeners during the training, and following the training, by participating in community-based horticultural programs, educational projects, and helping people in the community with their gardening questions.
The Master Gardener Training Program is packed with information provided by the many scientists, educators, and garden experts associated with Cornell University. The course includes information about botany; entomology; organic gardening; soil health; use of fertilizers; plant diseases; good flower, fruit, and vegetable growing practices; and wildlife management.
The deadline for all applications is Friday, December 30th. For more information or for an application, contact Rebecca Devaney by calling (518) 623-3291 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
