Learn to Grow in the Garden

Learn to Grow in the Garden Series

Started in August of 2014, Learn to Grow in the Garden classes represent what Master Gardeners do best: share research-based horticulture education in a garden setting. This series of classes was introduced to “put our Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens to work” by fulfilling our mission of education which is top priority. Master Gardeners of Greene County volunteers teach about herbs, vegetables, flowers, cold frames, hot houses, composting and many other gardening topics to area Master Gardeners, Park Partners, and interested gardening enthusiasts in our community and surrounding communities. Classes are held once a month on average and our goal is to instruct and provide hands-on demonstration if possible. All Learn to Grow in the Garden Classes count as Master Gardener Continuing Education. We also invite all Master Gardeners to volunteer to teach a class or help with planning and hosting. Please contact the Chair to get involved. If you’ve never attended a Learn to Grow in the Garden class, you are missing out! Join us!

2022 classes will take place at the Springfield Botanical Gardens (meet in the lobby beginning at 5:45 pm) and the Master Gardener Water Wise Garden. Each class will highlight a specific garden. All classes are open to everyone. These are outdoor classes; wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. In case of a weather cancellation, a notice will be posted on the Master Gardeners Facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/MasterGardenersGreeneCounty
