Master Gardener Class

CONCORD —Do you love gardening and sharing your experience with others? Consider becoming a Master Gardener volunteer for UNH Cooperative Extension to share your knowledge and experience while helping individuals and communities.

The 2013 Master Gardener class begins September 5 in Concord. Classes are from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. each Thursday through December 5, excluding Thanksgiving. Class size is limited. The deadline for applications is July 15.

Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by UNH Cooperative Extension to provide practical home and garden education. They answer questions at Extension's Education Center; volunteer at horticultural events, county fairs and farmers markets, and help manage school and community gardens.

To become a Master Gardener, you must demonstrate a personal commitment to volunteerism, a passion for learning, and enthusiasm for sharing your knowledge with others.

The educational component of the Master Gardener Volunteer Program consists of thirteen weeks of indoor and outdoor classroom work, online modules, and hands-on activities. Instructors provide an overview of major horticulture subjects, environmentally-sound gardening practices, food safety, and issues affecting New Hampshire residents and homeowners. Students also learn the practical aspects of becoming a Cooperative Extension volunteer, including risk management, project management, public speaking, communications, team dynamics, computer skills, and problem-solving.

Upon completion of classroom work, graduates volunteer 55 hours on designated projects or at the Education Center & Information Line in Goffstown.

Tuition for the 2013 Master Gardener class is $300.00, with the option of purchasing the Master Gardener handbook for $50.00 or using the free and downloadable electronic version.
