The Henrico County Office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is accepting applications for its next volunteer Master Gardener training program, which provides instruction in all aspects of horticulture.
Applications for the 2021 program will be accepted through Friday, Oct. 30. Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from Jan. 19 through March 18. The program costs $200 for materials.
This year’s training is planned to be conducted virtually. Participants will need access to a computer or tablet with reliable internet service, as well as video and microphone capabilities. The training is designed to shift to a hybrid class if conditions allow.
Participants will learn about lawn care, trees, shrubs, vegetable gardens, pest management and other topics. After completing 50 hours of classroom training, they will serve a 50-hour internship with the Extension Office and will help conduct educational programs for the public.
