Cultivating a Diverse Extension Master Gardener Program
September 29 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am
Biodiversity is essential to ecologic health. As gardeners we all know that mono-cultures are not sustainable. When asked to envision the next decade of our WSU Extension Master Gardener Program, volunteers see a program that is more diverse and accessible to all. To become more diverse and accessible, we must take action.
