COSHOCTON – If you want to learn more about gardening and want to volunteer your time and energy into educating your community, now is your chance. Ohio State University Extension Coshocton County is currently accepting applications for the 2016 Master Gardener Volunteer Training. Volunteers are not required to have gardening skills or knowledge, but a passion for learning about gardening and sharing this knowledge with others is a must.

Classes will meet on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. one night a week for 19 weeks. Classes will begin on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016 and continue each Tuesday through June 14, 2016.

This year’s training fee is $125, which includes an Ohio MGV manual and other educational materials. All OSU Extension volunteers must also be fingerprinted and return references to be considered.

2016 prospective Master Gardener trainee information packets with application will be available starting Dec. 7 at the OSU Extension office, located at 724 South 7th Street, Room 110 in the County Services Building, or you may download and copy the application and forms to be signed at go.osu.edu/2016MGV. Completed application and signed documents must be returned to the OSU Extension office no later than Jan. 20, 2016, at 4 p.m.

Training fee is $125 with the first six applicants receiving a $25 reimbursement upon completion of certification requirements, courtesy of the Coshocton MGVs. Applicants are responsible for required fingerprinting costs.
