Do you have the time and the desire to volunteer? Do you like helping others, getting your hands dirty and love gardening? If your answer is yes to these questions, consider participating in our next Florida Master Gardener training here at UF/IFAS Pinellas County Extension beginning in August, 2008.
You must attend one of our Master Gardener Preview classes to obtain an application for this training. We usually take 30 students for the training classes. Once we receive all of the applications, we will conduct interviews to select this year’s trainees. The $160 cost of the training provides your books and materials.
This short video might have answers to your questions about volunteering as a Master Gardener. Just remember; having the desire and time to volunteer are the most important ingredients for your success as a Master Gardener.
