Harrison County Master Gardener Basic Training

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 February 1, 2022, a statewide Purdue Master Gardener Program training session will be offered. Both Floyd and Harrison Counties will be hosting the program.

The Purdue Extension Master Gardener Program is a volunteer training program that provides a learning framework for participants to increase their knowledge on a wide variety of horticultural subjects. Participants will be exposed to a wide range of subjects including soil and plant science, diagnosis of plant problems, pesticide safety, and care of vegetable, flower, landscape, and fruit plants. In turn, participants commit to volunteer 40 hours of their time to be a certified Purdue Extension Master Gardener. As volunteers, participants grow by sharing knowledge while providing leadership and service in educational gardening activities within their communities.

The upcoming training will be offered virtually for 14 weeks on Tuesday nights. There will be a Local County Connection Hour also included each week. The cost of the program is $180 per person or $280 for two people sharing materials. Because this training is virtual, the registration process is a little different. Please contact Miranda Edge at Purdue Extension Harrison County to find out the specific steps to register. Miranda can be reached at 812-738-4236 or medge@purdue.edu

Due to the popularity of Master Gardener Training, classes fill up quickly. If you are interested in the program please reach out to Miranda Edge, ANR Extension Educator Harrison County. The deadline to register is January 11th.
