Do you want to join the Ohio State University Master Gardener Volunteer Program? Applications are now available for the 2018 training class to be held this fall.  The Ohio State University Master Gardener Program reaches hundreds of people in Clermont County each year.

Volunteers receive training from OSU experts on topics such as lawns, soil health, tree identification, annual and perennial plants, insects, pest management, plant diseases and more!  Once trained, Master Gardeners volunteer for OSU Extension to increase the outreach efforts of Ohio State University throughout the community.  Some projects include conducting public seminars and workshops, answering homeowner questions during Master Gardener Hotline hours, hosting informational booths, and maintaining OSU Extension’s container gardens.

The training will begin in October and run through November. Applications are due September 1, 2018.  Classes will be held Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 6p to 9p at the Clemont County Agriculture Center 4-H Hall Kitchen.
