You can grow your own food. And we can help!

Master gardener class has started... would you like to follow my notes?

Jan 06, 2011

I'm taking the Master Gardener course this winter through Oregon State University. My goal is to learn as much as I can about plants and apply that information to my vegetable and fruit garden. I'll be writing articles about the most interesting aspects and how we can apply that information to growing our own food. I've dedicated a page on my site to the subject, and will add more articles as I write. Stop by and check it out!


Amy, I loved the Master Gardener course--I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for this invitation to all, Amy! I checked out your "notes of interest" in your blog & will be back. The next few weeks are full of business work for me, so if I don't seem present, I haven't forgotten. I think of myself as a master gardener & have worked as a master gardener, but I still wonder about the Master Gardener's Course. I know lots of good gardeners who have chosen that study & not just to say they got "certified." :-) So in addition to what they are teaching, I'd be interested in how you relate to the MGC, since you are experienced as a gardener. What are the main attractions & rewards for you? Back soon. How often does the class meet & over what time? Good winter gardening/thinking!
thanks for the invite I would be interested. I took the class in 2001 or so in detroit.I am curious about variations, due to climate zone and politics. (I remember a lecture - from a fanatical college professor actually - about how we shouldn't say organic practices were better if we were volunteering under the program.)
