Murray County Master Gardeners Seeking New Members
SLAYTON, Minn. (9/9/2019)— Think globally, act locally. It’s a phrase that applies so well to University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardeners in Murray County.
We’re the University of Minnesota on the ground—often literally—delivering science-based practices to our communities. As volunteers, Master Gardeners learn not only from scientific research, but from one another and the communities we serve.
And sometimes we surprise people. Many are familiar with Master Gardeners as reliable resources for questions about flowers or grass because horticulture skills are a cornerstone of our work.
But did you know that Master Gardeners also focus on local foods and sustainability? Or that we teach about practices that restore Minnesota’s native prairies and protect our precious water?
Or that being volunteering as a Master Gardener gives people a chance to spread their wings in photography, writing, community speaking and more?
Masters Gardeners come from all ages and backgrounds. We’re especially excited to see the new generation of Master Gardeners embracing opportunities with enthusiasm.
Learn more about becoming an Extension Master Gardener by visiting extension.umn.edu/master-gardener. Or call Murray County Master Gardener Coordinator Dave Bau at 507-372-3900, ext. 3906 or the local office at 836-6927.Applications will be accepted online until Oct. 1. Come learn, grow and share with us.
