Applications are being accepted now through Nov. 16 for the 2016 Colorado Master Gardener program.

If you have a love of gardening and would enjoy sharing your passion with others, the Colorado Master Gardener program could be for you. You do not need to be a gardening expert to register.

The program provides over 70 hours of training in various horticulture topics, including climate, soil, mountain gardening, vegetable gardening, tree planting and pruning, weed management and more, and all classes are taught by Colorado State University Extension professionals and other local gardening experts. In return, volunteers are required to give back a minimum of 50 volunteer hours by Oct. 31, 2017.
