All community members interested in learning more about garden related topics are invited to attend six classes that are a part of the 2020 Oregon State University Extension Service Central Gorge Master Gardener training program.
All classes are held at the Hood River Valley Christian Church, 975 Indian Creek Road, Hood River, and are taught by Oregon State University instructors. These classes were selected to be open to the community since Master Gardeners receive many questions on these topics at plant clinics during the growing season, said a press release. To continue the Oregon State University Extension Service Master Gardener mission of sustainable gardening education for the community, these classes will be open to all. If you wish to participate in a class, just show up and pay the $10 drop in fee (cash and checks only). Coffee, tea and conversation with other gardeners will take place before class and at break.
