Ever thought about becoming a Master Gardener? Do you know who the Master Gardeners are and what they do? Do you love to garden? Would you be interested in passing on your gardening knowledge to others? Well, here’s some information for you.

The requirements to become a Master Gardener are simple.

– You have some knowledge or experience in gardening or landscape.

You are accepted into the local training program and can volunteer time conducting gardening education programming coordinated through the UC Cooperative Extension office in Colusa.

To become a Master Gardener, you must first fill out and submit an application and attend our “Meet the Master Gardeners” orientation on November 14 at 1pm. The orientation will be at our office, 100 Sunrise Blvd., Colusa.

The training includes evening classes held once a week in Willows. The classes begin January 11 and finish April 26. Class attendance is mandatory. Class hours are 6pm to 9pm on Thursdays.
