Master Gardener lessons are given for 2021

Are you interested in indoor gardening, landscaping or other gardening? If you are, we have a program for you!

Van Buren County Extension Office offers training sessions to become a senior gardener. You will receive 40 hours of training for a fee and then return for 40 hours of community service through various horticultural related projects in Van Buren County. Training sessions will be held on Wednesday, September 22 and 29 and October 6, 20 and 27. You must attend all five sessions to qualify as a master gardener.

The program will be open daily from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The program includes classes taught by State Extension Horticulture Specialists and other horticulturists. You will not be disappointed during this program and you will get a lot of educational information.

Classes are held online using the Zom Conference at a location in the county. Our location will be the Van Buren County Library in Clinton.

If part of the zone cannot be done by chance due to Covidy 19 cases, the unit will be transferred to an online training program that will be completed by the trainer at home.

Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service is an equal opportunity organization. Please contact your Regional Extension Office as soon as possible if you need reasonable accommodation or other formatting materials to participate. Call Arkansas Relay 711.

Beyond the training session, you will have the opportunity to work with some great volunteers and continue to gain knowledge in gardening.
