SMB Colorado Master Gardener Program for Mountain & High Desert

The 2020 San Miguel Basin Colorado Master Gardener program will start January 21st and runs through April 9th.

It’s the time of year we start taking applications for our local Colorado Master Gardener Course for Mountains and High Desert!!!  This year it will be held in the evenings at the Norwood  (Lone Cone) Library!!!  Classes will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9 pm.  We will start in January and go until April for a total of 12 weeks.  Topics will be presented in a variety of ways:  live instruction including hands-on labs, live video presentations and online sessions at home.  Please apply as soon as possible—it’s a process that takes time—we need to interview Master Gardener volunteer applicants and prep.
