Are you interested in home gardening, landscaping, or other areas of horticulture? If you are we have a program for you! The Van Buren, Cleburne, Searcy, and Stone County Extension offices will be conducting training sessions to become a Master Gardener. The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action institution. If you require a reasonable accommodation to participate or need materials in another format, please contact your County Extension office (or other appropriate office) as soon as possible. Dial 711 for Arkansas Relay. You receive 40 hours of training for a fee and then in return give back 40 hours of community service through various horticulture related projects in Van Buren County. The training sessions will be on Tuesdays, November 1 at the Ozark Folks Center in Mt. View, November 8 at the Fairfield Bay Conference Center, November 15 at Leslie, November 29 at Fairfield Bay Conference Center, and December 6 at Heber Springs. To be certified as a Master Gardener you must attend all five sessions. The program will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The program will contain sessions taught by Master Gardeners, County Agents, and Extension Specialists, and other horticulture professionals. You will not be disappointed and will be getting a lot of educational information during this program. Beyond the training session, you will have the opportunity to work with some great volunteers and continue to gain knowledge in horticulture. So, if you are interested in horticulture and would also like to give back to your community, give us a call at the Van Buren County Extension office at (501)745-7117 for an application. Applications are due in the Van Buren County Extension office by October 20, 2016.
