The Bluebonnet Master Gardener Association sets 2021 Training Dates

The Bluebonnet Master Gardener Association is a multi-county program designed to provide in-depth gardening education and volunteer opportunities for anyone in the Austin, Colorado, Fayette, and Washington County Area. Each year beginning in January the association hosts their annual training class, providing 50+ extensive hours of education in the form of classroom presentations, hands on activities, field trips, and association meetings.

This is a unique opportunity for individuals who are interested in horticulture and serving their community. Master Gardeners are trained in all facets of horticulture such as plant & soil science, entomology, plant pathology, fruit and vegetable gardening, and much more. Upon completion of their training, Master Gardeners will be required to give at least 50 hours of volunteer service time in their local community in order to receive the title of “Master Gardener”.

Training classes begin January 12th and will be held every Tuesday through April 27th at the Weimar Civic Center at 1754 I-10 in Weimar from 9:00 am-1:00 pm.  Final assessment will be held on April 20th, with graduation held on April 27th. Applications are available at the Colorado County Extension Office or online at . Class size will be limited, so to ensure your spot in the 2021 BMGA Training Class the application and payment of $175 must be turned into the Extension Office as soon as possible.
