Master Gardener Speaker’s Bureau
The length of the program can be varied, but most run about an hour. When available, handouts are given out. Some presenters use PowerPoint or slide presentations and may request a screen.
Penn State Master Gardeners of Lancaster County are volunteers who have been trained by the Penn State Extension to deliver extension educational programs to the consumer. Sometimes, circumstances prevent the presenter from being able to attend on the agreed-upon date. If a back-up presenter is not available for the scheduled program, a substitute program can be selected.

Checks should be made out to "PSCE Program Fund" and given to the presenter or mailed to Master Gardener Program, Penn State Extension, 1383 Arcadia Road, Room 140, Lancaster, PA 17601-3184.
