WSU master gardener training program offered online

PORT ANGELES — Registration ends today for the 2021 Home Horticultural training program offered by the Washington State University Clallam County Extension.

The course will stream on Zoom from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays for 16 weeks starting Jan. 9 and ending April 24.

Students will be expected to use the WSU Extension’s online master gardener training modules and complete reading assignments from the Master Gardener Manual.

Weekly reading assignments are expected to take 3-5 hours per week, and quizzes and the final exam are open book.

Tuition is $300 and requires a computer with a reliable internet connection and a Zoom account.

Some partial tuition waivers are available.

The course can be taken as a standalone certificate program or as the first step toward becoming a master gardener.

Those wishing to become a Clallam County Master Gardener will need to participate in additional classes on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon as well as field trips and hands-on activities that will be scheduled when COVID-19 precautions allow and must volunteer 100 hours towards community sustainable garden educational efforts.

A $50 refundable fee is charged for participation in the hands-on activities that are required for completion of the master gardener certification.
