UW-Extension Announces Master Gardener Training in Juneau County

UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are members of the local community who take an active interest in growing flowers, vegetables, fruits, shrubs, trees and lawns.

“What really sets them apart from other home gardeners is their commitment to learning and sharing what they learn with others,” said Alana Voss, Juneau County Agricultural Educator.

Master Gardener Volunteers participate in over 36 hours of training taught by University of Wisconsin-Extension staff and specialists in topics ranging from botany and soils; edibles and ornamentals; pest control using conventional, organic, and chemical-free methods.  Training is a mix of classroom lecture and activities, online videos, and reading assignments.

Training for the Level 1 Master Gardener Volunteer Program begins January 22, 2018 at the Juneau County UW-Extension Office. Trainings will take place from 6-9pm every Monday night until April 23, 2018. After completing the training, individuals can become a certified Master Gardener Volunteer by providing 24 volunteer hours in UW-Extension approved projects, each year.

“The service opportunities are wide-ranging,” said Voss. Master Gardener Volunteers support community gardens, speak to local groups, and plan or assist with a variety of garden-related community projects.  In Juneau County, Master Gardener Volunteers have contributed over 15,349 hours since 2000

Applications are currently being accepted.  Contact Juneau County UW-Extension office at 847-9329.  Or, visit their web site at https://juneau.uwex.edu/.
