Volunteer Hours Reporting Deadline Approaching!

In order to be recertified as a Master Gardener Volunteer for next year, you must turn in your individual record sheet to your local recordkeeper by the deadline. The statewide deadline of October 1 will be here before you know it. In some counties these records are requested earlier, so if you are unsure of the deadline where you live, ask your county UW-extension office! Remember that you must have completed a minimum of 24 hours of volunteer service AND 10 hours of continuing education (unless you just took training this year).
