Llano County Master Gardener
Dear New Class Members,
Because of the uncertainty of the year 2021 and to ensure a healthy, safe experience for all involved, we will be changing how we handle our classes.
To become a Master Gardener, an intern needs 50 hours of education and 50 hours of community service. The 50 hours of community service you need can be acquired beginning this spring once you have signed up for the program. There are Llano Master Gardener projects you can help with. For example, instead of our annual Lawn and Garden Show, we will be hosting a plant sale in April to benefit our scholarship fund. Spring is a busy time in our gardens and there will be lots of opportunity to get those volunteer hours in before the actual class time begins.
At this time, we are planning to hold in person classes that will begin September 7, 2021 and will run every Tuesday for 6-7 weeks. As vaccinations occur and the virus is hopefully in check in April and beyond, we might plan 3-4 field trips that will be included in your education hours.
Please send in your application for the class. The payments can be made when we have decided on our first field trip.
We will not do anything that compromises your health.
Thanks for your understanding and flexibility and rest assured that we will do everything we can to make sure the Master Gardener training experience is a fun and educational one. We pride ourselves in having the best speakers and programs for our organization. We are ready to move on into 2021 and hope you will come along with us!
