Are you interested in gaining horticulture knowledge and helping others? The Colorado Master Gardener program may be for you. Participants receive intensive training in horticulture in exchange for volunteer service; answering gardening questions, teaching classes, writing articles or service to others.
The 10-week course is scheduled Jan. 31 to April 11, 2013. The class will be held at the CSU Otero County Extension office in Rocky Ford on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There are two training options. One option includes volunteering your time in the community; this fee is $230 if paid by Jan. 4. For this option you will need to complete and submit an application, complete a background check, include reference names and sign a volunteer commitment agreement. The second option has no volunteer requirement and only requires a simple form to complete; this fee is $575 if paid by Jan. 4. All fees include the course book.
