New Master Gardener Training Update

Master Gardeners of the Ozarks, We have about 20 people who have committed to the training in Forsyth this year! Unfortunately the Ozark class did not make due to low turnout this year so there will not be a class offered there in the evening.

I wanted to invite you to attend any of the classes at no charge if you would like a refresher. There is a download link below for the schedule we will follow. This year I am offering the training core manual to the training participants which provides the basis and text for each of the presentations we will offer. If you also would like a copy of it, the cost is $30.

Here are directions to the church in Forsyth where we are meeting. Take State Highway 160 to the four-way stop in Forsyth. Turn onto David Rd. and go past the Taney County Courthouse. At the next stop sign, make a right onto Main St. and go one half block to the Community Presbyterian Church on the left. It sits directly across the street from the Judicial Center. Park in the back or on the east side and enter the downstairs door.
