Re: gardening/non-gardening


Initial reaction would be to think that it is ludicrous.
The world is full of those with knowledge through theory rather than practice 
though.  The majority of basic higher education is through books, not 
experience....but yet are knowledgeable in the field.  
Within the MG org. there are many ways of outreach, education and research 
that do not have to include actual digging in the soil.  Being a Master Gardener 
does not mean one is an expert gardener, it simply means that one attended 
and passed the course and fullfilled one's obligation through volunteering. 
These folks fill in where many of us have no interest, thus quite valuable to the 
organization.

That makes no sense to me at all...how does a person claim to be a
Master Gardener if someone else does their gardening for them? What
would be the point?? How do you give volunteer service especially of an
informational nature if all you have is the vicarious experience of
watching someone else do your gardening?
