Oracle Community Learning Garden

  The Oracle Community Learning Garden and the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension are partnering to offer the Master Gardener Program to the residents of Oracle and eastern Pinal County.

   This 16-week course will give gardeners of all experience levels the opportunity to become Master Gardeners and the chance to learn the science behind the art of gardening. Classes will be held at Trowbridge Hall, located at the Oracle Union Church, 705 E. American Avenue, Oracle, on Fridays, from noon to 3 p.m. Classes will begin Sept. 27 and will run until Jan. 31, with breaks for Christmas and Thanksgiving. 

  Lectures will be presented by experts from the University of Arizona, local Master Gardeners and technical professionals who share a love of gardening, teaching, and science. Courses include vegetable gardening, irrigation, deciduous fruit and nut trees, tree pruning and staking, plant disease and diagnosis, organic gardening, and other topics of interest. 

  If you are interested in growing your knowledge, helping your community and improving your gardening skills, please join us and become a Master Gardener!  

  For more information or to register for class, please contact Terry Ellsworth (520-836-5221 x 202 or tellswor@cals.arizona.edu).  The course fee is $150 for individuals and $225 for couples. The fee includes the UA Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Manual and all class materials.  A limited number of reduced fee scholarships may be available upon request. 

  The mission of Master Gardeners is to provide research-based gardening education to the public. After completing the requirements for certification, Master Gardeners volunteer in their communities by providing lectures for local residents, helping their friends and neighbors with plant and landscape information and engaging in educational horticultural projects.
