AKRON, Colo. — This fall is registration time for those wanting to become a Colorado Master Gardener (CMG). Just what do Colorado Master Gardeners do? They assist Colorado State University Extension in disseminating and educating on the topic of horticulture.
What sort of projects does a Master Gardener do? Over the years, CMG volunteers help with community gardens, demonstration gardens, teaching children gardening, teaching adults gardening and more. Other types of projects include help with the Burlington Seed Library, building Little Free Libraries, doing fundraising, helping with grant writing, writing articles and doing Facebook posts.
If you are interested in applying for the program, see the link below:
- You can access information and direct interested applications to apply online at https://cmg.extension.colostate.edu/about/become-a-colorado-master-gardener-2/
- Initial training will be January – April 2022 and cost $200 for CMG Apprentices.
When a potential applicant applies, I will be notified. The program is 100% remote. Golden Plains Area applicants can opt for getting together for some labs and/or get-togethers.
If you would like to contact CSU Horticulture Agent Linda Langelo for any further details or questions you may have, please call (970)474-3479.
