The Ohio State University Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program provides intensive training in horticulture to interested Ohio residents, who then volunteer their time assisting with educational programs and activities for Ohio residents through their local OSU Extension county office.  Volunteers are not required to have gardening skills or knowledge; but a passion for learning about gardening and sharing this knowledge with others is a must!  Working with county Extension personnel, Master Gardener Volunteers provide such educational services to their communities as: answering gardening questions from the public; conducting plant clinics; gardening activities with children, senior citizens, or disabled persons; beautifying the community; and developing community or demonstration gardens.

The next class we are offering here in Delaware County is going to be held in 2016.  Classes will be once a week starting in February (day to be determined) from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. through the end of March.  Cost $250 - For more information please contact Tim Barnes at barnes.821@osu.edu
