2014/2015 Master Gardener Training Class
Classes begin Tuesday, September 30 and continue until November 18 with a week off for Thanksgiving. There will be classes December 2, 9, and 16. We then break for the holidays and resume class on Tuesday, January 7. The training program ends on 3/10 when the final exam will be administered. The cost for the Penn State Master Gardener program is $200. This covers the cost of the Penn State Master Gardener manual, name tags, and speaker fees. The fee is payable once you have been accepted into the program and will be collected at the first class session on September 30.
An orientation meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the extension office. At this time we give an overview of the program and volunteer opportunities, administer the pre-test and conduct brief one-on-one interviews.
