Advanced webinars for Master Gardeners

Many of you know of and have enjoyed Brooke Edmunds’ advanced webinars for Master Gardeners.  They are both educational and can be used as a teaching program. The webinars give us education hours for our recertification hours. However, due to current changes in the structure of the national Extension organization, OSU will not have free access to the webinar platform. Below is a link that will give you more information.

An addition to the blog information: On March 2nd your OMGA Board approved a contribution of $500 to this outstanding program.  Gail Langellotto also reported to the OMGA Board that the webinars are now fully funded through 2019.  So we should be expecting at least one new webinar per month through December.  We encourage you to click the link provided and consider a personal donation to help support and keep these webinars in full production and available to all.

We, your Executive Board, thank you in advance for your complete support.
