Master Gardener Database Tips

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Good morning Master Gardeners,

It is a new year and you are already hard a work making Chicago a more beautiful place!

Many of your have made a New Year's resolution to enter your Volunteer hours weekly or monthly. Thank you. We already have over 350 hours reported for the year 2008.

If you still are not up on to the database, please contact me and we will set up an instruction time.

Here are important hints for using the database:

Monthly meetings need to be reported in two places:

Under Activities, you may report one hour Volunteer time for attending the meeting. Monthly meetings are listed by date.

The speaker for a Monthly meeting is Continuing Education. Look for it listed by month and the speaker. Usually one hour credit.

In hopes of making Continuing Education items easier to find, they are always listed by the month in which they occurred.

If you have attended a Continuing Education event that is not on the list, click on to Suggested Continuing Education at the left hand side of your screen, and enter it there.

When I have approved it, it will come back up on the database for you to report against. I try to send out emails to let you know when an item you have submitted is up on the database.

If you have Volunteer events that are not in the database list, send them to me via email.

I need the name of the event, location address, especially the zip code and date. As usual, I'll let you know when it is ready for you to report against.

Remember, I'm only an email away.
