Become a Master Gardener

Posted

The WSU Jefferson County Extension Master Gardener Program is open to those with an interest in gardening and a willingness to use their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to make a positive impact on their local community.

Applications are being accepted now and are due by Feb. 1.

The 12-week course includes professional education from WSU research-based online training; lectures from local experts on plant biology, composting, plant disease diagnostics, rain garden design and more; and field trips to outstanding local and regional gardens.

Upon completion of the course, participants give back to the community by committing to participate in Master Gardener programs that fulfill the mission to be effective community educators in gardening and environmental stewardship, according to a press release.

Class size is limited, so participants should sign up early. Lectures and field trips take place 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Thursdays, Feb. 23 through May 11, in Chimacum and Port Townsend. Cost is $265; scholarships are available.
