The Master Gardener Association of Cape Cod is now accepting applications for its 2015 class. The Master Gardener Program is a cooperative effort between community volunteers and the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension.
Those accepted into the program will be trained by the cooperative extension to teach Barnstable County residents about plants, pests, and the environment as it relates to ornamentals and food crops. Being a Master Gardener is a long-term commitment and requires volunteer and training time.
Those interested should submit applications by September 15. Accepted applicants will be selected and notified in November. Classes will start in January.
The application form is available at www.capecodextension.org/horticulture-entomology-ticks.
