Master Gardener classes set

MOORE — The Cleveland County Extension office is currently accepting registration for the 2012 Master Gardener program. Space is limited so apply early, according to Tracey Payton Miller with the Cleveland County office of Oklahoma Cooperative Extension.

The cost is $100 per person, which supplies each student with a soil test, several detailed educational manuals and research-based information provided by the Extension Service.

The classes are open to anyone with an interest in horticulture who has a high school degree or equivalent.

Classes begin Aug. 23 and are offered from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursdays through Nov. 8 at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 601 E. Robinson St. in Norman.

Topics covered include the latest gardening trends regarding botany, vegetable gardening, disease and insect control, trees, shrubs, fruit, composting, soil science, lawn care and more.

For an application, visit oces.okstate.edu/cleveland/horticulture or call 321-4774.

“Becoming a Master Gardener is a great opportunity to further your horticulture knowledge and also meet individuals who share your gardening interests,” Payton said.
