Fill out the application below to be considered for the 2021 Secrest Master Gardener program. Applications are due by December 31 th, 2020 or when spaces are filled. The class is limited to 30 participants. Interviews with prospective volunteers will take place the second and third weeks of January, 2021.

The training course will take place on Friday afternoons March 12- May 14. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this course will be a combination of online instruction and onsite training. If the pandemic should suddenly disappear a 100% in-person will be considered. Course work will be completed each week prior to the class where we will meet to discuss the content on Zoom or have in-person labs. Upon completion of the training volunteers must earn 50 hours of volunteer service by the end of the next year (19 months to complete hours) in order to become a Master Gardener Volunteer. Participants will have assistance in finding a volunteer role.

Entrance into the program is based on passage of a criminal background check. Cost is $150 and covers the training manual, hand lens, shirt, name badge and other supplies.
