Posted by  //  July 1, 2016  //  Home & Garden, News

The Master Gardener Program of Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension is planning a Master Gardener training to start in September 2016.  The Master Gardener Volunteer Program is a national program of trained volunteers who work in partnership with their county Cooperative Extension office to expand the agency’s educational outreach by providing home gardeners with research-based information.

Master Gardener trainees should have a basic knowledge of gardening, enthusiasm for acquiring new knowledge and skills, and good communication skills.  Most important of all, MG trainees must have the willingness and spare time to participate in volunteer activities.

This training combines online materials with 5 mandatory Saturday sessions and weekday evening discussion sections.  For details, please consult the updated MG page:

If you would like to be considered, please contact Pat Curran at  Be sure to include your US mailing address, e-mail address, and telephone number(s).  The deadline to return the preliminary application is August 1.  Applications will be reviewed, and interviews will be scheduled for August.
