Informational meeting Oct. 1 at Extension Office for prospective Master Gardeners

       People interested in taking classes to become Master Gardeners are invited to an Informational meeting Thursday October 1.
       The session will be from 10 a.m. to noon at the Colorado State Universty (CSU) Extension office, 17 N. Spruce St.
       Explained will be the 2016 Colorado Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program. A press release defines it as a “volunteer program focused on teaching sustainable gardening practices. By becoming a Colorado Master Gardener, you will increase your knowledge and skills, educate others and improve your local community.”
       The Extension Service website states that the program “requires 50 hours of volunteer time in exchange for a nominal fee, plus the 10-week course, which begins in January 2016.”
