Master Gardener Program
Interested in learning how to better manage your yard and gardens and share your gained knowledge with others through volunteer activities?
University of Wisconsin -Extension specialists help participants explore the issues involved in managing trees and shrubs, lawns, landscape plants, fruit crops and vegetables. Classes include discussions on insects, disease and weed management, cultivar selection, pruning, mulches and other crop care activities. The programs are brought to you via videoconferencing with live speakers who will be including power-point slides, overheads and video in their presentations. Sites will have an opportunity for interaction with the speakers. Participants receive two, three-ring binders featuring reference information on topics covered during the course.
In exchange for this instruction, participants are required to volunteer a minimum of 24 hours of time to serve as resource to their community via their local county extension office.
The program is open to the general public. For more information on when the next class will be held, contact Jennifer Blazek at the Polk County Area UW Extension Office at 715-485-8600 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
