Winter 2019-2020 classes for Penn State Extension Master Gardener Certification will begin on Thursday, October 3, 2019 and will end in early March 2020. They are held at the Reynoldsville Foundry in Jefferson County from 5:30 pm to 8:45 pm on Thursday evenings except for holidays and bad weather.

Penn State Master Gardeners is not a garden club. It is a federal, state and county supported training program in which you can learn to teach others about the newest researched information on gardening. Topics include fruits, vegetables or landscape, as well as how to protect it all from insects, disease and poor cultural practices.
A fee of $200 covers all class materials and the manual.
