UW-Extension Master Gardener Program
Master Gardener Volunteer Level 1 Training: Fall 2017 :
If you are interested in taking the 2017 Master Gardener Level 1 training course for Racine and Kenosha Counties, a mandatory orientation session is scheduled for Monday, July 17th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the Northside Library, 1500 27th Ave. in Kenosha. At this session, you will learn about the UW-Extension Master Gardener volunteer program and the requirements to become a Master Gardener volunteer.
In order to become a UW-Extension volunteer, a person will need to agree to a criminal background check, take Mandatory Reporter Training, and sign a volunteer behavior agreement. There is a fee of $150 for the course. The course will run for 12 weeks, meeting once per week for a 3 hour session.
The course will be taught as flipped instruction, meaning the participants taking the course will need to have access to a computer to view the lecture part of the training. At the in-person sessions, activities related to the week’s topic will be offered.
The location for the course is the meeting room at the Somers Festival Foods, 6000 31st St., Kenosha. An afternoon and an evening session will be offered, 1:00 to 4:00 pm or 5:30 to 8:30 pm. The training will be offered on Wednesdays from Sept. 6 through Nov. 22.
