Orientation: Become a Master Gardener Volunteer

August 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Nancy Berlin, the master gardener coordinator, said Master Gardeners like
helping people grow things, answering questions about plants, diagnosing
plant problems and helping people get their gardens started. “Master
Gardeners serve as environmental educators to promote landscape
practices that are good for the environment, but also produce beautiful
results.”

The Extension is looking for more people to train as Master Gardeners to
bolster the numbers that dwindle annually through attrition, Berlin
said. “People move away. Right now, we have about 190 and we would like to have about
200, total. This class will give us an opportunity to train more
citizens in best practices.”

Volunteering as a Master Gardener requires some commitment. People who are
interested can find out what’s involved in one of two orientation
classes to be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20, in the county’s
Development Services Building at 5 County Complex Court in Woodbridge
and at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22, in the Jean McCoy Conference Room
at Sudley North at 7987 Ashton Ave. in Manassas.
