Johnson County will once again be offering a Purdue Master Gardener Basic Training Class. Classes are scheduled for Tuesdays from 6 pm - 9 pm, January 9 through March 27 at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Franklin, IN. The 12 week class provides gardeners with education on gardening and horticulture topics so that they can become volunteers to help others grow.
Are you an educator, community volunteer, clergy member, business professional, local government employee, or basically anyone who lives or works with PEOPLE? Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to learn about your own culture, the culture of your organization, & how to recognize & appreciate the culture of others in order to improve personal & professional relationships!
