How to Become a York County, PA Master Gardener
Master Gardener trainees are selected on the basis of an interview and a pretest. They then embark on 45 hours of classes that cover a wide range of horticulture topics. At the end of the classes they complete a post-test and a 10 minute presentation. When they have completed all this and 50 hours of volunteer time they are certified as Penn State Master Gardeners. To retain certification they must complete 10 hours of advanced education and 20 hours of volunteer service each year.
The next York County, Penn State Master Gardener class will be held at the York County Extension office, Tuesday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 noon beginning August 16, 2016 through the first week of December. Orientation sessions, interviews and pre-tests will be held in the Spring of 2016.
