Re: Re: Master Gardener classes

I referred to him as an extension agent because, being the old term, I figured everyone would recognize it. His title is Horticulture Educator here. And yes, he teaches most of the classes, though sometimes MGs will teach portions and occasionally there's a guest lecturer.
Oh, the newsletter came yesterday with the fall schedule. More different speakers than they had when i took it. Sessions are held 6-9pm Wednesdays and 9a-12:30p on Saturdays this time. I see that Rosie Lerner, Purdue U Consumer Hort Specialist from the main campus in West Lafayette IN will be covering Plant Science and Mary Keesy, another Purdue Hort Specialist (not sure which campus) will do Plant Propagation. The ANR (Ag & Natural Resources) Educator of another county will do Trees and someone with no credentials listed is doing Soils. An ex-extn director will cover lawns and another person with no listed credentials is doing shrubs and groundcovers. A Purdue (campus not known) Animal Damage Specialist will speak on Animal Damage & Control. Most of the rest of the speakers are MGs or the Hort Ed.

The Hort Ed is a very knowledgable man, we are lucky to have him. He's a very good teacher so it makes sense for him to do so.

Why should an agent spend his evening hours teaching classes
to people who can't help him with phone response calls that come in during
weekday hours?
