Master Gardener Program in Escanaba
The Master Gardener Program welcomes anyone interested in learning about gardening, community service and working with other volunteers. No prior knowledge or experience in gardening is required. Join this exciting program by participating in the fall 2016 training session in the Escanaba area. Registration must be completed online any time before August 11, 2016 at this website. Classes are held at Bay de Noc Community College in Escanaba Thursdays 5:30 - 9:30 pm from August 25th through December 1st. Cost (includes training manual, speakers & facilities) is $300.
The North Farm is hosting a series of MSU Extension short courses starting in April on topics designed for market gardeners, small farms, and skill-seekers interested in diversified vegetable production. These short courses are an in-depth exploration of farming fundamentals and best practices for diversified vegetable growers.
Each five-hour learning session has an emphasis on hands-on activities so participants can practice what they learn, and includes the cost of materials for a project. “
All workshops will be held on Sundays on-site starting at 1 pm EST and will include a combination of experiential and classroom-based learning. Short courses qualify for education hours through the MSU Extension Master Gardener program.
Registration is required for these events and can be accessed at here
