Master Gardener Training

Master Gardener Training

Do you enjoy gardening and want to learn more about the plants around you?  If so, Washington State University Extension in Cowlitz County is offering Master Gardener Volunteer training starting in January in the Longview. Participants receive over 90 hours of training covering in-depth community gardening topics from edible and ornamental plants to composting and environmental issues, from plant health care to problem identification and management. Training sessions held in Longview, start on January 19th, 2018 and continue on the first and third Fridays of every month (9:00 am – 4:00 pm) through the end of June.

The WSU Master Gardener program offers ongoing educational opportunities, time for fun and sharing of gardening information, and a chance to provide a unique service of unbiased horticulture information to the community.  To learn more about becoming a Master Gardener, attend one of the orientation sessions held during December.  For questions, contact Gary Fredricks at 360-577-3014, extension 3 or garyf@wsu.edu
