2021: Marion County Master Gardener Program: When are the next classes?

Marion County will not be offering a Fall 2021 Extension Master Gardener Basic Training course. During the Spring of 2022, there will be a state-wide virtual course available. We are currently planning on offering a fall 2022 in-person Extension Master Gardener Basic Training course. For those unable or unwilling to wait until 2022 for training, please contact Carey Grable, so that we may connect you with a neighboring county for training.
