MONROE - Green County Master Gardeners Association recognized 41 Green County area residents for earning their Master Gardener certification at its recent annual meeting. The Master Gardener program serves the needs of all horticulturists in the Green County area by providing continuing education for its members, providing community services through volunteer activities, exchanging gardening ideas, promoting responsible and sound gardening practices and providing a link between the community and University of Wisconsin-Extension. To earn the UW-Extension Master Gardener certification, participants are required to complete 36 hours of classroom training, which covers a variety of horticultural topics including soils, botany, entomology, plant pathology, houseplants, landscaping, turf, vegetables, fruits, and ornamental plants.
