This Garden Basic class will be Thursday, December 20 at 6:30 pm at the Mahaska County Extension Auditorium, 212 North I Street Oskaloosa.

Garden Basics classes are Mahaska County Master Gardeners presenting on a variety of general gardening topics. Each one is an independent topic presented as a family-friendly presentation. They are FREE, open to the public and for anyone wishing to learn about the topic. Prior registration is NOT required but appreciated.

Mahaska County Master Gardeners are celebrating their fifteenth year. The local program organized after the county held their first training. The educational volunteer program, sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, provides current, research-based, home horticulture information and education to the citizens of Iowa through programs and projects. Master Gardeners receive horticulture training and volunteer to promote a mission of education and service. The program is open to anyone 18 or older with an interest in gardening and a willingness to use their knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm to make a positive impact on their local community.
