Friday Focus: 2021 Volunteer Development Series                         

TEMG's have the opportunity to participate in educational training sessions that connect local Master Gardener associations across the state with each other.  We will virtually tour demonstration plots, service projects, and even cross state lines and glimpse into other Extension Master Gardener programs from across the Nation. These sessions are offered every other month on the fourth Friday of that month at 10am.  These sessions are open to certified TEMGs only, and will equip TEMGs with new ideas and connections!
