Re: master gardener class ideas?

Our MGs used to take day trips but now they make them into 3-day excursions which I can't possibly afford. I'm planning on a day trip for myself and maybe a few other MGs this summer. Either to Columbus for the Ohio Short Course Trade Show or up to Arrowhead in Michigan. Gas prices have been coming down so if that continues, I might be able to manage both.

As to MG class ideas....
Our Hort Ed is instituting something new here for advanced education hours. He is conducting three 12 to 18 week certificate courses of in-depth study. One is on pest identification, another on community outreach implementation and I can't recall the third one. I think they cost about $150 and are, for the most part, conducted during the regular work week.

would take 3 hours out and 3 hours back.... long day trip

Tricia, our MG group have taken day trips with the farest point, Dubuque,
being a 4 hr drive. We stop at other gardens and garden centers in between. We made the trip by bus so it was a long day but relaxing for all without the driving duties. Our garden club chartered a bus last yr to make a trip to Kansas City which is a 3 1/2 hr drive. Again we toured several gardens & a garden center. It means leaving at 6 A.M. & returning at 9 P.M. but enjoyed by
all and the cost is very reasonable.
