Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program
We train volunteers to help low-income gardeners in LA county grow and eat more nutritious vegetables. The Master Gardener training session will be 12 Saturdays, March 12 through May 28, 2005. Application deadline is January 31, 2005, however because the application requires fingerprinting and a background check, it would be best to get the application packet by January 21. For more information and an announcement flyer, contact Gloria Mitchell at (323) 260-3348 or
