"The Master Gardener program is a great community service program for the area.  It was a wonderful opportunity for me to be able to learn from very knowledgeable people. I have been able to apply quite a few things that I learned in the classes to my everyday work. It was also really nice to meet a bunch of very nice people in the area." Trainee from 2012 MG class
