WSU Master Gardener volunteer training offered


WSU Extension Master Gardeners needs you! WSU trains local Master Gardener Volunteers to provide public education to Okanogan County communities. Master Gardeners assist the public in solving gardening and home horticulture problems, and they also provide educational programs to adults and youth on topics related to gardening, home food production, water conservation and much more.

If you would like to serve your community, while increasing your gardening knowledge and skills, you really should consider becoming a WSU Master Gardener. Volunteers receive a 16-week training course on topics ranging from soil fertility to growing vegetables to landscape design, and in return are asked to give 40 volunteer service hours in their first year. To remain active, each following year Master Gardeners volunteer for at least 25 hours, and complete 10 hours of continuing education classes.

To learn more about this opportunity, please contact the WSU Okanogan County Extension Office at 509-422-7245 as soon as possible. Colville Reservation residents are invited to train in Okanogan County as well. Application deadline is November 1, 2015, and the next training class begins in January 2016. We look forward to serving with you!

Extension programs and employment are available to all without discrimination. Evidence of noncompliance may be reported thorough your local Extension office.
