Master Gardener Training Class Offered

Posted by John Fulton -

A new training program for Master Gardener trainees will be offered in Lincoln at the U of I Extension Office beginning on September 22 and concluding December 1, with no class the week of Thanksgiving. The classes will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. until approximately 4:00 p.m. Cost for the training will be $100 per person for those volunteering time through the Logan County group, with supplemental funding of approximately $50 per person being sponsored by the Logan County Master Gardeners. Non-compliance with the volunteer service requirement will result in a bill to recoup the actual cost of the training. The cost to those from other Master Gardener programs will be $150.

Participants completing all ten sessions will then be considered interns with the expectation of 60 hours of volunteer service be completed within program guidelines within the next two years. After the internship, the expectation is 30 hours of volunteer service and 10 hours of in-service education minimums. If you are interested in joining, Don Miller in the Logan County Extension Office will serve as the coordinator. His contact information is or (217)732-8289.
