Volunteering at Plum Street Market Garden near MGM Casino

Posted by Barbara Finch on

I am volunteering here for my 40 volunteer hours to become a Certified Master Gardener this year. I'm really excited about God opening this door for me!  I started going there this week. I went for 2 hours on Tuesday and I will go for 2 hours on Thursday. The days of attendance will change as the seasons change.  I am getting flats ready with seedlings so they can be planted in various other gardens.

I got a lot of information I didn't know yesterday and expect to get more every class. I know I can make it to become a MSUE Master Gardener with God's help and continued blessings. After I have finished the course and become a Master Gardener, I will join the MI Master Gardeners Association, Inc. and renew my Master Gardener credentials each year.
