Become a Dubuque County Master Gardener
MASTER GARDENER TRAINING 2014
Master Gardeners are individuals who have an interest in horticulture, have taken the Master Gardener training offered by Iowa State University Extension, and share their time and expertise with other gardeners. It is the acquisition of knowledge, the skill in gardening, and giving back to the community that distinguishes a Master Gardener from other gardeners.
During the training several current Master Gardeners and Extension specialists will be on hand to answer questions and deliver training sessions about houseplants, vegetables, and herbaceous ornamentals. Other sessions will be brought to the Dubuque County Extension Conference Center through Adobe Connect distance learning technology including sessions about botany and soils, landscape plants, entomology, fruit culture, turf grass, and landscape design. One class will be held at Iowa State University Campus in Ames.
The first class will be held on January 21, 2014 from 6:00 - 9:00pm. Classes will be held most Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Dubuque County Extension Office through March 13th. The full training schedule will be posted here soon.
If registered by January 10, 2014, the charge for the class is $195 including all sessions and materials. Late registration fee is $215 from January 11th through January 20th. All first-year Master Gardeners who complete their requirements and 40 hours of service will get a $45 rebate at the end of the year.
To register please complete this application and submit payment by January 10th to avoid any late fees. To request more information contact the Dubuque County Extension Office at 563-583-6496.
