Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in growing flowers, vegetables, fruits, shrubs, trees and lawns.
Master Gardener trainees attend 40 hours of classes taught by Iowa State University Extension staff and specialists in topics ranging from lawn care, flower and vegetable gardening, ornamental trees and shrubs, fruit crops, and houseplants to insect, disease, and weed control, soil and plant nutrition, and pesticide safety.

Master Gardeners may choose to answer telephone requests for gardening information, staff plant clinics or displays, speak to local groups, teach youths, provide horticulture therapy activities for the elderly, and supervise or judge county fair horticulture activities as judges or project coordinators.
The program will be held beginning on Tuesday evenings, September 16 thru November 4.  The classes will be held at 112 N Main Street, Charles City, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.  Floyd  County will provide a $95 scholarship so your cost is only $100.
