Master Gardeners are volunteers, trained by Iowa State University (ISU) in horticulture, who return service to the community through educational projects. What really sets them apart from other home gardeners is their commitment to learning and sharing what they learn with others. Each year ISU Scott County Extension & Outreach extends this opportunity to 25 residents of
Scott County.
 
Master Gardener trainees attend over 50 hours of scheduled classes and complete 40 hours of volunteer service during their first year to become Master Gardeners.

Classes will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 6th and ending October 30th. There is a fee of $150.00 which covers your training and materials provided by ISU Scott County Extension & Outreach.

If you are interested in becoming an Iowa Master Gardener, contact the ISU Scott County Extension & Outreach Office, 875 Tanglefoot Lane, Bettendorf (359-7577) for an application form for this fall’s training session. The application may also be accessed from our website http://www.extension.iastate.edu/scott/ .
