Master Gardener Training and Horticulture Classes
WSU and UI Extension will offer Master Gardener Training and Horticulture Classes beginning on January 9 and concluding on April 17, 2018. Classes will be held each Tuesday from 1:00 – 4:30 at the Clarkston Campus of WWCC. Applications are due no later than December 22, 2017. The classes will be taught by UI and WSU faculty and local horticultural experts.
The classes provide extensive horticultural training to become a WSU or UI Master Gardener volunteer in Asotin, Garfield, Nez Perce or Whitman Counties. Master Gardeners are community educators who provide science-based information on horticulture and environmentally sound gardening practices. Benefits of becoming a Master Gardener include gaining a satisfaction from helping others; developing lasting friendships with others interested in horticulture; increasing your public relations skills and self confidence; and broadening your horticultural knowledge through formal training.
There are also a limited number of openings for individuals that do not plan to become Master Gardeners but want to take the class to increase their own horticultural knowledge.
