The fall 2019 MASTER GARDENER class has been cancelled because we did not meet the class minimum
It's time for the 2019 Fall Master Gardener Training Classes. This fall session will begin on September 23 and run through October 31. Class size is limited to ten people so register early. The fee for the session is $100 to cover educational materials. Please download the schedule linked below for dates and times.
In exchange for 40 hours of educational training, individuals are required to return 40 hours of volunteer service within one year of their training. This service should include helping County Extension offices with horticultural projects that benefit their local communities.
Continuing education is offered to encourage long-term commitments. The Master Gardener approach helps the local Extension office reach a broader audience than is possible with only one or two agents. Volunteers help extend the educational arm of Mississippi State University to the public by providing horticultural information based on University research and recommendations. The Lafayette County Master Gardeners Association is an active, dynamic organization composed of skilled and experienced gardeners who enjoy sharing their expertise with others in the community.
Call now - 662-234-4451 - to register for the class and join the Lafayette County Master Gardener Association.
