Extension offering online Master Gardener class
Gardening enthusiasts in Nobles County are encouraged to apply to become a University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener. The application period is open through Oct. 1.
Extension Master Gardeners bring science-based horticulture knowledge and practices to Minnesota, promoting healthy landscapes and building communities through their volunteer efforts.
Master Gardener volunteers are respected as reliable sources of gardening information for Minnesotans. Becoming a Master Gardener gives volunteers a chance to expand their interests in areas including sustainability, local foods, pollinator health and climate responsiveness.
Master Gardeners also put their skills to work conserving green spaces, native plants and clean water.
The University of Minnesota has trained thousands of Master Gardeners. They come from all ages and backgrounds. Each year, they contribute more than 140,000 hours of service in Minnesota communities.
This year, the training will be all online and spread out over 14 weeks. Learn more by visiting z.umn.edu/MG_info or calling (612) 625-9864.
