How green is your thumb? Want to learn more secrets to successful gardening? You may be surprised to learn the tricks of the trade.
UW Madison Division of Extension Sauk County is offering Wisconsin Master Gardener certification classes starting September 14, 2020. The course will be held Saturday mornings from 9am to 12pm at the West Square Building in Baraboo. It is a twelve-week program and will conclude at the end of November.
You will learn to be a gardening superstar and contribute to your community! As a Master Gardener Volunteer, you will build social networks and acquire valuable skills through our blended classroom model. To earn your certification, you need a minimum of 36 hours of classroom training, to pass a final exam with a score of 70% and to complete 24 hours of approved garden-related volunteer hours. To keep up certification in the future, you need 10 hours of education and 24 hours of volunteer work each year.
If you are unable to commit to becoming a certified Master Gardener but would like to learn more about gardening, you are welcome to join any session for $15/class. Please contact the Extension Sauk County office at 608-355-3250 for a copy of the scheduled topics and to register for a session or to learn more about becoming a certified Master Gardener.
