The Master Gardener Program could be for you if...........
•  You want to learn more about plants and gardening.
•  You are eager to participate in a practical and intensive training program.
•  You enjoy sharing your knowledge with others.
•  You have enough time to attend training and volunteer your time to the community.

This program is a volunteer educational program designed to meet the horticultural needs of citizens of Ohio.  Its purpose is to train volunteers and use their expertise to teach people about plants, their culture, and their importance to the environment and to our quality of life.

Training classes are held on Thursdays for 9 weeks, starting in March. The classes are held from 9:00am-4:00pm with an hour lunch. The cost of the class will be $100.00 to cover speakers, manuals, and hand-outs.  Couples who wish to share a training manual may do so for an extra $50.00.  Each class member will be financially responsible for getting themselves fingerprinted.
