All About The Master Gardener Program
To determine if the Tennessee Master Gardener program is for you, as yourself these questions:
- Do you have an interest in serving in any of the volunteer areas mentioned (such as civic organizations, the eldery, public libraries)?
- Do you have the desire to share the joy of gardening with others?
- Do you want to teach others more about nature and their environment?
- Do you have 80 hours each year to devote to the program - 40 hours for training and 40 hours for your community?
If you answered "Yes" to these questions, please join our Tennessee Master Gardener Volunteer Program!
Note: I would have specifics about the amount of training involved and continuing education. Since I don't know anything about the program, i wondered what specifically was involved.
