SHEBOYGAN

Whether an experienced gardener with a "green thumb" or just a beginner gardener with energy and desire to learn more about the hobby, the University of Wisconsin Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program may be the right program.

Master Gardener Volunteers are trained volunteers who assist the staff of the University of Wisconsin Extension in helping their communities better understand horticulture and the environment. There are currently about 100 members belonging to the Sheboygan County Master Gardener Volunteer Association.

The General Master Gardener Volunteer class is being offered this fall starting on Sept. 9. The classes will be held on 12 consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Sheboygan County UW-Extension Office, 5 University Drive, Sheboygan. Cost of the program is $75, which includes: Master Gardener Program Manual, on-line & classroom instruction, and memberships in both the Wisconsin Master Gardener and Sheboygan County Master Gardener Associations. Registration deadline is Aug. 29.

The general class is intended to be an introductory course covering a wide range of horticultural topics. Among the topics to be covered include: Vegetable Crops, Introduction to Turf Management, Plant Pathology, Backyard Wildlife, Weeds and Pest Management, Entomology, Fruit Crops, Using Native Plants, Invasive Plants, Woody Landscape Plants, Soils and Fertility, Plant Propagation, Herbaceous Annuals and Perennials, and Fruit Crops.

The classes are delivered using a combination of on-line and classroom presentaitons. University of Wisconsin horticultural faculty, horticultural agents, and others with expertise in specific horticultural issues will be providing the instruction.

In order to become a certified Master Gardener Volunteer, participants must attend the classes, complete a final exam and volunteer time back to the community in a horticultural related project.

Class registration and/or information about UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteers is available on-line at http://sheboygan.uwex.edu or by contacting the Sheboygan County UW-Extension office at 920-459-5904.
