Community Input- Summer 2014

The OSU Extension Service Master Gardenerâ„¢ program team for Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties (Weston Miller, Pukhraj Deol, Jordis Yost and Margaret Bayne) propose to make a set of systematic changes to the MG training and volunteer program for 2015, which are based on rich feedback from a recent strategic planning process and on seven years of survey evaluation.  There are multiple goals for these proposed changes including:

  1. Improving the effectiveness of the MG training and volunteer program.
  2. Streamlining branding and communications.
  3. Optimizing resources (financial, human, and organizational).
  4. Expanding our reach to under-served audiences to promote diversity and equity.
  5. Growing the next generation of gardeners (youth and adults).

We have solicited substantial feedback from MG volunteers and community partners about the proposal through meetings (125 attendees) and a survey (215 surveys completed) and are ready to adopt an operations plan and budget for the 2015 MG training and volunteer program as detailed below.  Thank you for your help in turning our proposal into a plan!
