Master Gardener Classes In February And March

Anyone who is interested in improving their green thumb, consider the variety of gardening classes being offered to the public during the Coos County Master Gardener’s 2014 Training in February and March.

Classes are open to drop-in participants and range from botany and entomology to landscaping, water conservation in the garden and sustainable gardening on the coast. Classes are taught by Oregon State University faculty and staff and local gardening experts.

Cost for each 3-hour class is $10, or participants can pay $15 to take both the morning and afternoon sessions on two different subjects. Most classes will be held at the South Coast Education Service District office in Coos Bay, with a few being held at the Coos County Extension Service office in Myrtle Point. Drop-in participants will not become certified Master Gardeners but will gain knowledge and connect with local resources and fellow gardeners.
