Potential Future Master Gardeners:

We are proud to announce that we are taking applications for the 2020 Master Gardener Intern class!  Due to COVID-19, the program will be going virtual this fall, so it is going to look a little different. 

First, classes will be held virtually (LIVE!) on the internet, Tuesday evenings beginning August 25, 6:30-8:30 pm ET.

Second, this is a statewide event, so participants will have a chance to see some of the best speakers in the state.

Third, there will also be a local component where local hosts will talk about how that week’s topic applies to local gardening, as well as other questions that may arise. 

The deadline for receiving applications and payment is August 14, so if you know people who are interested in taking the class, forward this message to them immediately! 

Please feel free to share this with your friends, neighbors, and other gardening enthusiasts.
