Do you like to garden? Do you want to give back to the community? Do you want to sharpen your skills and learn more? Become a Master Gardener! Master Gardeners are volunteers who are trained in research-based small-scale food production, horticulture, and gardening through the training course.
The Greenbrier Valley Master Gardener Program announces their 2024 training sessions. A combination of in-person and online classes will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. While the classes started last Tuesday, Jan. 9, it is not too late to “get in on the fun and learning.” Classes are held on Tuesdays at the WVU Building at the fairgrounds from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Zoom on Thursdays. There will be a total of 19 horticultural classes and a complete schedule will be available later this month.
The program helps residents better understand horticultural and environmental issues through community engagement in gardening and beautification projects at schools, parks, public institutions, community organizations, and locations throughout Greenbrier County.
