Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County (CCE of Oswego) will be offering a Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) Training Course for new Student Master Gardeners. The training course will be offered online through Moodle to give students more flexibility with their personal schedules. The class will start in February and run through June (exact dates & times TBD). Students will work through the online course materials through Cornell’s Garden-Based Learning Library on the first and third week of each month. This will be followed up with virtual learning sessions through Zoom on Wednesday evenings on the second and fourth week of each month. During each follow up session, students will come together to review key knowledge checks, participate in class discussion, work through hands-on activities and listen to special speakers present on various topics.

The MGV Training Course will cover all aspects of horticulture and is open to anyone with a passion for gardening and a willingness to volunteer in the community. Students must complete a final project and contribute 50 hours of volunteer time per year through the oversight of CCE of Oswego County Master Gardener Volunteer Program.
