To make volunteers aware of best practices around minors, Purdue has a brief document that any Lake County Master Gardener is strongly encouraged to review. This is REQUIRED for any volunteer who has direct contact with youth at events like Ag Awareness, Junior Master Gardener programs, or school programs, and is recommended for all Master Gardeners. Going through this brief certification will ensure your participation in any event where children are present. The process takes an average of 15 minutes to complete.
