I know at least one of my readers is a Master Gardener, but most are not and I wanted to spread the word. I’m not going to get a chance to go through the program this year (too busy!) so I hope someone can “take my place” (even though I didn’t have an official one!).
The Oregon State University Master Gardener™ Program is an Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service program that educates Oregonians about the art and science of growing and caring for plants. This program also facilitates the training of a highly educated corp of volunteers. These volunteers extend sustainable gardening information to their communities through education and outreach programs.
There’s even an online course! More information: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/mg/training
