University of Maine Cooperative Extension has a MG program here in Maine (duh?) I expect the program, or something similar to it is available in other states.

I'm thinking of enrolling. Anybody here been involved with such a program?

A friend of ours is one. Good program if you want the education and don't mind paying back with your time. Gardeners seem like a good bunch to get mixed up with.

I think every state with land grant colleges has the master gardener program. Here in Okla. you can always count on them for correct and timely answers to any gardening question.

My husband's sister-in-law did it here in Missouri. It sounded very interesting and she learned a lot. I believe she even had to learn the scientific names for plants, but she is good at landscaping her yard now. A very good program, I think. AND she is very proud of her title as Master Gardener.

I've read quite a bit about it in the Reiman magazines, It looks like it takes a fair amoun of knowledge to gain the title.
Good luck

Well, I'm 52 and semi-retired, and I've got the farm set up about the way I want it, and frankly, have been getting a mite bored lately. I'm thinking this would be a way to exercise the ol' gray matter (what's left of it), get out of the house and meet some people occasionally, and add some skills to my hobby-farming repertoire.
