OSU Master Gardener badge

I’ve been part of the OSU Master Gardener program for well over a year. I really enjoy the wide variety of volunteer opportunities it connects me with.

Just today I received my official badge in the mail! This means that I’m no longer an intern, but have become a veteran. This represents 64 hours of class time, quite a bit of studying, and 57+ hours of community service.

I will volunteer 20+ hours a year and participate in 10 hours of classes a year to maintain my veteran status.

Don’t be shy to ask me about the program if you are interested! I recommend it!
