The Loudoun Cooperative Extension Office is assembling the next class of volunteers to be trained as Master Gardeners.
The application deadline is Friday, Oct. 26. In 2019, the class size will be limited to 13 students. Classes will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., from late January through the middle of April, at the Loudoun Cooperative Extension Office in Leesburg.
Master Gardeners are trained volunteer educators that work with Loudoun communities to encourage and promote environmentally sound horticulture practices through sustainable landscape management and training. Before serving as volunteers, Master Gardeners receive extensive training under the guidance of Virginia Tech and the Loudoun County Cooperative Extension office to provide unbiased, research-based horticultural information to the community.
