Master Gardener's Class

I've wanted to take a Master Gardener's class for several years. The class is 13 weeks and is offered by our state university extension office. The requirements are passing a post test as well as 30 hours community service project.
I went to the first class this week. The topics were native animals and then landscaping possibilities with native plants. The speaker had studied both for over 40 years and was very knowledgeable. Using native plants for landscaping makes so much sense. I don't know why I had never considered it before! I'm looking forward to learning much more in the coming weeks.

Anybody have experience growing native plants?

This class sounds great. I know nothing about plants, but LOVE a beautiful landscape. I look forward to hearing about everything you learn!

What a neat class, gardening with native plants is much better for the environment. I'm primarily interested in vegetable gardening right now, some day I'll need to learn about landscape plants. I hope you enjoy the class.
