(BEDFORD) - Lawrence County Purdue Master Gardener Program is seeking students for their new class that begins September 2.

The Purdue Master Gardener Program is a volunteer training program that provides a learning framework for participants to increase their knowledge on a wide variety of horticultural subjects.

In turn, participants volunteer, representing Purdue University. As volunteers, participants grow by sharing knowledge while providing leadership and service in educational gardening activities within their communities.

Training will be on Tuesdays, from 6-9 p.m. each week through Nov. 25. Participants will be exposed to a wide range of subjects including soil and plant science, diagnosis of plant problems and pesticide safety, as well as culture of vegetable, flower, landscape and fruit plants.

Materials and expenses for the series of classes cost from $135-175, depending on the materials each participant wants to receive.

Materials are available in printed form or electronic form or both if desired.

The fee covers such items as reference notebooks, mailings, name badges and a refundable $25 fee after completion of the program and Master Gardener status is achieved.

These materials all become part of the Master Gardener's personal collection.

For application packets or questions about the program, contact, Dave Redman, 924, 16th Street, Bedford, or phone (812) 275-4623.
