gardenK-State Research and Extension Wild West District

 

Beginning Sept. 3, Kansas State University’s Extension Master Gardener program will be offering 50 hours of online horticultural training covering a wide range of topics. 

The Extension Master Gardener program is a long-standing informational program offered by K-State’s Horticulture Department to train gardening enthusiasts to be a valuable information resource for their communities.

The approximately 50 hours of training will be offered via live Zoom meetings each Thursday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for 15 weeks ending Dec. 17. Participants unable to tune in during the day on Thursday afternoons may watch the recorded training sessions at their convenience.

Topics will include plant growth and development, soils, annual and perennial flowers, landscape maintenance, vegetable gardening, insects and entomology, pesticide use and safety, plant diseases, and landscape design, among others.

Applicants must have access to the internet, a computer that has microphone and camera capabilities as well as an actively monitored email account.  Also, all participants must have a high school diploma or equivalent.

Cost of the program is $50 (payable to the Wild West Extension District) and once certified, participants are asked to donate time in their communities either working on horticulture-related projects or teaching others what they have learned. 

Deadline for registration in the Master Gardener program in the Wild West Extension District (Stevens, Haskell and Seward counties) is Aug. 26. 

Registration may be completed at your local Extension office or by going online to the Wild West District website at wildwest.k-state.edu and click on “lawn, garden and trees”.
