Train To Be A Master Gardener


Share post:

Chrystine Gaffney is a certified Master Gardener, and she wants to let other Verona residents know that Essex County has opened registration for its nine-month Master Gardener course.

New Jersey Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who assist Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) Cooperative Extension in its mission to deliver horticulture programs and information to the general public. Anyone with an interest in gardening and a commitment to volunteer service can become a Master Gardener. No previous education or training in horticulture is required.

The 2020 course will be held weekly at Garibaldi Hall in Roseland on Tuesday mornings from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning on September 10 and running through May 2020. Professors and professionals will teach the art and science of gardening through in-depth training on everything from soil testing, pests and diseases to native plants and landscaping.
