Volunteer information for Master Gardeners who work at our Pennsylvania Farm Show and Ag Progress Days exhibits, participate in the Poison Prevention Week activities, and help with the Household Hazardous Waste Collections.
Poison Prevention Week
Find all the information you need to participate in Poison Prevention Week.
Chris Becker provided a webinar to explain the Poison Prevention Week outreach programming. Unfortunately the video has about 14 minutes of "dead-space" in the beginning and some at the end. The actual training portion is about 45 minutes. The code to get in is 1515156.
These are the items provided to each student that participates in the Poison Prevention Week Program at their school to take home and share with their parents/guardians about the program.
