2021 Training Application
The mission of the Sandoval Extension Master Gardener Program is to provide trained volunteers to assist the Sandoval County Cooperative Extension Service in providing county residents with the most current science-based horticulture information and practices available. The program trains volunteers to educate and inform members of their communities about appropriate, sustainable, and environmentally friendly gardening techniques.
The challenges created by Covid19 means there are a number of unknowns associated with the 2021 Training Program. Since the nature of the training will be different, the cost of the program will be determined when the schedule is finalized. In addition, the beginning date for training and meeting days/times will be announced at a later date. The size of the training class is limited but there will be a waiting list. There will be a waiting list as well. By submitting this application you are holding your place in the class or on the waiting list but you are not obligated to join once the details are known.
