Master Gardener course starts in JanuaryNovember 26, 2018
Area residents who enjoy gardening and helping others grow are invited to be a part of the upcoming Purdue Master Gardener course.
The Purdue Master Gardener Program is a volunteer training program which offers an extensive course in horticulture in exchange for a donation of volunteer hours to teach others what they have learned. The program is hosted by Purdue Extension in Dubois, Perry and Spencer counties, and is open to anyone wanting to learn more about horticultural topics.
The multi-week course will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Thursdays, Jan. 10 through April 11, at the Spencer County Youth & Community Center, 1101 E. 800N, Chrisney.
Participants will be exposed to a wide range of subjects including soil and plant science, diagnosis of plant problems, pesticide safety, composting, and the culture of vegetable, flower, landscape, lawn and fruit plants.
An early-bird registration fee of $125 per person is available through Dec. 14, when the fee increases to $135 per person. The registration fee covers items such as speakers, materials, badges and refreshments. Couples or family members who wish to take the course together and share reference materials can register for $200 per couple through Dec. 14 or $210 per couple after the early registration deadline.
