2021 New Master Gardener Member Training - Deadline 11/13/2020

Faulkner County Master Gardeners is offering our next session of New Member Training in conjunction with the State Master Gardeners’ 2021 Online Training. This self-paced 40-hour curriculum will teach students the basics of botany, soil testing, plant selections for Central Arkansas, plant diseases, and integrated pest management. The state’s leading horticultural experts will present the online lessons and students will test their comprehension through quizzes and hands-on activities.

In exchange for the 40-hour training, graduates commit to volunteer at least 40 working hours and acquire 20 additional learning hours during their first year of membership. To remain a member-in-good-standing in subsequent years, 20 working and 20 learning hours are required annually.

Online applications are available through our Facebook Page or may be accessed at bit.ly/fcmgApplicationOnline. The course fee of $160 covers training materials, t-shirt, nametag and first year’s dues. Deadline to submit applications is November 13th, 2020.
