Master Gardener class starts in January
Is gardening your favorite past-time? Do you get excited just visiting a nursery? Would you like to learn more about gardening while helping others with gardening concerns? Do you enjoy volunteering and sharing your gardening tips with friends and family?
If so, you may be interested in becoming a Master Gardener Extension Volunteer.
The Master Gardener Program in Georgia is a volunteer training program designed to help University of Georgia Extension Service agents transfer research-based information about gardening and related subjects to the public by training home gardeners.
The Coweta County Master Gardeners are actively involved throughout the county through the Master Gardener Extension Volunteer program. The Master Gardeners volunteer at the Extension Office, answer questions at many local events such as Newnan Market Days (Watch for the 'Ask the Master Gardener' table), provide gardening presentations to local community groups, and coordinate fund-raisers to support youth scholarships.
The Master Gardeners have a lot of fun while providing a great service to our community.
The Coweta County MGEV Training Program will be offered Jan. 14 through April 3, 2014. Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. until noon at the Coweta County Extension Office, 255 Pine Road, south of Newnan at the Coweta County Fairgrounds complex.
