Do you have a love for gardening and volunteering? If you do the Montgomery County Master Gardeners are a great fit for you.
The Montgomery County Master Gardeners are a group filled with experience and knowledge regarding all things gardening. They meet once a month for a meeting and a program. They also maintain several landscaped areas and gardens around the county.
Master Gardeners are trained by the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service faculty by completing 40 hours of basic horticulture training. After training, you are qualified to work under the supervision of the local county extension agent as a Master Gardener.
The next Master Gardener training class will be held at the Garland County Fairgrounds from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The first class will be held Thursday, January 27, The remaining four classes will be held on Thursdays throughout the month of February.
