FMI: 2014 - 2015 Master Gardener Volunteer Program:
Learn about soil health, composting, botany and how plants work, insect and disease life cycles, how fertilizers and pesticides function (and are often misused), growing fruits, vegetables, supporting pollinators, and more.
Certification requires an initial 40 hours of volunteer work, with only 20 volunteer hours in subsequent years. Projects include school gardens, growing food for food pantries and soup kitchens, doing educational talks and demos, and much more. It's easy, meaningful, and fun!
