WATERTOWN, N.Y. — The Master Gardener Program gives transitioning service members and veterans an opportunity to gain a nationally recognized certificate that could lead to careers in agriculture, landscaping, horticulture and forestry.
The Farm Ops Master Gardener Training is being offered as an online certificate program to transitioning service members and veterans in Jefferson County and the surrounding areas. This program is offered as a two-month program with flexibility in the schedule to meet the needs of all participants. Starting April 5th, Master Gardener online courses will be held via Zoom from 9am to 12pm Monday through Thursday with the online portion concluding on April 28th. Beginning on May 3rd, participants will participate in a practicum portion volunteering at a number of local sites– including the Watertown Urban Mission Garden from Monday through Thursday between 9am and 4pm. This “internship” will continue until May 28th.
This project is one component of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Farm OPS program dedicated to assisting military members leaving active duty and veterans in the community find fulfilling careers in agriculture.
