The Oregon State University Master Gardener™ Program is an Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service program that educates Oregonians about the art and science of growing and caring for plants.

This program also facilitates the training of a highly educated corp of volunteers. These volunteers extend sustainable gardening information to their communities through education and outreach programs.

Option 1: An Alternate Route to Becoming a Certified Oregon State University Extension Master Gardener Volunteer (open to Oregon residents only) Would you like to become a Master Gardener Volunteer? FIRST, contact your local Extension Office to find out what live training they offer - this is the best route to becoming a Master Gardener.If the timing of the live training doesn't work for you, this Instructor-led Online Training is an excellent alternative. 

Option 2: Certificate of Home Horticulture The same training Master Gardeners receive in Option 1, for those who want the training but do not want to become a Master Gardener Volunteer.

The High Desert Food & Farm Alliance is partnering up with OSU Extension's Clare Sullivan to put on an amazing workshop at Seed to Table Farm in Sisters next Tuesday Nov 14th from 3-5 PM. This is a great opportunity to learn how OSU Extension can benefit your farm through programs and research. 
We will have discussions on soil fertility and best management practices of season extendersand invite all of you to share knowledge of getting the most out of season extenders. We'll also tour several different styles of high tunnels and have information on how to get funding for them (that's the big question isn't it?)! 
Tom Bennett from NRCS will be there to answer any questions about the High Tunnel Initiative, which is a fabulous grant opportunity that could help you get a High Tunnel on your farm. We will also discuss another funding opportunity through HDFFA. 
We're happy to announce that we've made this exciting professional development opportunity FREE and open to everyone (so invite your farmer friends and farm crew/interns). We'll also be providing light refreshments. PLEASE RSVP by calling (542) 390-3572 or emailing shaili@hdffa.org
