Master gardener program looking for gardeners
The Penn State Master Gardener program in Westmoreland County is again looking for good, enthusiastic gardeners who want to share their knowledge and time to help Penn State serve the gardening public.
Every year a class of 15 trainees is selected from 30 or more applicants. The trainees then attend classes covering a broad range of horticultural topics and agree to do at least 50 hours of volunteer work helping to educate other gardeners.
If you are interested in gardening and volunteer work, this is a chance to take some excellent training, get to know other enthusiastic gardeners, and help others by sharing your knowledge.
For more information, call the Penn State Cooperative Extension Office in Westmoreland County at (724) 837-1402 by Sept. 10 and ask for information and an application or visit http://westmoreland.extension.psu.edu.
