If you want to sharpen your gardening skills and you have an interest in sharing your knowledge with others, Purdue Extension has the ideal program for you. Beginning August 16, 2016, the Purdue Master Gardener Program Basic Training will be offered by Purdue Extension-Delaware County.
A farmer network initiated in March 2015 by Purdue Extension is seeking new participants. Purdue Extension of Delaware and Madison Counties is coordinating the network for those interested in local and regional food production, with a focus on diversified, specialty crop, and small- to mid-scale farm owners and operators marketing their products direct to consumers and to local and regional buyers. Beginning or aspiring farmers are highly encouraged to participate.
