Training to become a Master Gardener Volunteer will be hosted in Oneida County from February 8, 2018 through July 12, 2018.

Registration paperwork can be obtained ahead of time at the Extension Office in Oneida County. It is the goal for all registration material to be completed and submitted at Orientation. There will be a required Volunteer Agreement, Consent to Background Check, and Criminal Background Check as part of the registration. Registration material will also be available that evening. A class manual and other perks will be included as part of the $100 payment, due the night of Orientation. The deadline to apply for the program is February 8, 2018, which is the first day of class. Refunds may be less processing and handling; no refunds after class begins.
Students will have assigned reading and watch video lectures at home. Class time will be for students to inquire about the lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in labs and hands-on activities. Topics include: botany, soils, integrated pest management, weeds & wildlife, entomology, plant pathology, general gardening practices, herbaceous ornamentals, woody ornamentals, vegetables, and lawns.
