Oct. 22: 'Meet the Marketers'

A "Meet the Marketers" career networking event will be held from 1:30-4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22, in the Multipurpose Rooms of the Trabant University Center.

“This training program is designed to make good educators out of good gardeners,” said Extension Educator Carrie Murphy. “Master Gardeners 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.

Details on the Master Gardener program and training, and application materials, are available on the Cooperative Extension website or by sending email to Murphy at cjmurphy@udel.edu or calling 302-831-2506.
