Master gardener course planned at Seymour


The Jackson County Master Gardener course will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesdays from Sept. 3 to Dec. 10 at the Jackson County Learning Center, 323 Dupont Drive, Seymour.

The program, offered by Purdue Extension Jackson County, is designed to make the latest information on gardening and home horticulture available with an interest in gardening.

After completing the course, Master Gardener volunteers help others grow by sharing what they have learned and by leading educational gardening activities in their communities.

Topics to be covered include plant science, insect identification, turfgrass care, herbaceous ornamentals, fruit production, beekeeping, plant diseases, soils science, wildlife damage control, vegetable production, woody ornamentals, pesticide safety and invasive species.

The cost, which covers material and expenses such as reference notebooks, mailings and name badges, is $100 per participant or $120 for couples.
