I participate in Level 1 Master Gardener Training. The course provided extensive knowledge from planting and harvesting to identifying invasive species. All of the class material was accompanied with researched fact sheets and links to online sources. I don't think there would be any other way to get this much information in a non-biased way. It was also great to meet other people with similar interests in a classroom environment. I look forward to working as a Master Gardener volunteer in the upcoming years. I personally think that UWEX is a valuable resource, not only for horticulture education but also for nutrition information and the 4-H programs. UWEX is truly an example of providing life-long learning for all of Milwaukee County and Wisconsin as a whole.
