Re: was Master Gardeners/ Garden clubs

Ceres, your program sounds like a wonderful example. My location is the
2nd largest city in Indiana and our CES is on the IPFW campus. But there
are no ag/hort courses offered at this Purdue location - one must travel
to West Lafayette for that. Therefore, there are no university
instructors; the Hort Ed teaches all the classes with the aid of MGs and
an occasional guest speaker.

We give callbacks on recorded phoned in questions, too. But this is done
during CES office hours. I'm not about to take a vacation day to spend
my time on the phone. I think Cathy in IL mentioned doing her callbacks
from home so they can be done in the evening.
