Master Gardeners plan training classes

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Do you like to garden? Are you interested in helping other gardeners in Lake County?

Then consider applying to become a University of California Master Gardener.

Master Gardeners are volunteer staff of the University of California who have been trained and certified to extend research-based horticultural information to the public.

The Master Gardeners program will host a series of upcoming orientation meetings in the conference room of the Lake County Agricultural Center, 883 Lakeport Blvd. in Lakeport.

The meetings are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29; 5:15 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4; and noon on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

The orientation meetings will provide an overview of the UCCE Master Gardener Program and what is expected of a UC Master Gardener volunteer.

The information will be presented by current UC Master Gardener volunteers and the Master Gardener Program Coordinator Gabriele O’Neill.

The presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

Those interested in the program only need to attend one orientation meeting.
