The Henrico County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is accepting applications for its Volunteer Master Gardener Training Program, which provides instruction in all aspects of horticulture.
Participants will work alongside other gardening enthusiasts to learn about lawn care, tree and shrub care, fruit and vegetable gardens, flowers, pest control, tree pruning and other subjects. After completing 50 hours of classroom training, participants will complete a 50-hour internship with the extension office and help conduct educational programs for the public.
Classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from January 17 through March at the Henrico Extension Office, 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. Apps will be accepted online until Friday, October 28. The program costs $175 for the hardware.
