Carrie Murphy, Master Gardener program coordinator, Cooperative Extension Services, said of the program, “This training program is designed to make good educators out of good gardeners. Trainees pledge to devote volunteer time to help Cooperative Extension provide research-based information to the gardening public. Without this volunteer program, we could not reach nearly as many people as we do now.”

Training will consist of horticultural and educational topics, with emphasis on hands-on experience and active learning techniques.

There is a training fee of $150. Scholarships are available based on financial need. The application deadline is Jan. 10, 2011.

Details on the Master Gardener program, training, and application materials are available on the Master Gardener website, or by email or phone request to Carrie Murphy, at [cjmurphy@udel.edu] or (302) 831-2506.
