Are you interested in becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer? Cornell Cooperative Extension Associations in Chenango, Delaware, Herkimer, and Schoharie and Otsego Counties seek residents who have a genuine interest in horticulture and wish to serve as outreach ambassadors in their home counties, sharing information with community members and engaging in community projects.
Ten consecutive Mondays, September 10 - November 19, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (w/one hour lunch)
Master Gardeners are trained in the art and science of horticulture, chiefly around the themes of ornamental landscapes and food gardening. The Master Gardener Programs are local, state, and national programs directed by state land-grant institutions—Cornell University for New Yorkers—to enhance the ability of County Cooperative Extension organizations to share knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm with residents through trained volunteers.
Attend the fifty-hour course in general horticulture designed for Master Gardener Volunteer Trainees held at the First Presbyterian Church in Cooperstown. Some classes may be held at SUNY Cobleskill.
