CSU Extension Master Gardener LogoThe Colorado Master Gardeners in Weld County are now accepting applications for the spring training program.  Classes will occur from January 13th through March 31st on Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and will be located at the The Ranch in Loveland and Island Grove Regional Park in Greeley.  Applications are due by October 28th, 2016 for the spring training classes.

Candidates for the Colorado Master Gardener Program should want to learn more about plants and gardening and be willing to participate in a practical training program followed by the completion of volunteer hours.
