The USDA People’s Garden Initiative and Cooperative Extension Service bring you this series of training sessions on a wide variety of horticultural and garden related topics. There is no charge for registration and all sessions are open to the public.
The Cooperative Extension System is the nation’s largest and oldest network of universities. Visit www.extension.org for a sample the type of extension education going on across the country. Our presenters also provide longer format training for Extension Master Gardener Programs and develop print and electronic educational material and books on a wide range of consumer horticultural topics.
The USDA People’s Garden Initiative promotes growing healthy food, people and communities. It encourages USDA employees and communities to plant gardens because we believe the simple act of planting a garden can make real and lasting change to improve food access and healthy lifestyles.
