2017 Training - Speakers

Welcome to the 2017 Master Gardener Training Speaker page. This page was created to give you a visual of the speakers that will be coming this year since remember a name is usually a little more difficult than a face. Some speakers are returning guests but may be a different than the speaker you had in your class and some are new to us. Please remember that at each class there will be opportunities to earn volunteer time as well as CE units. You do need to sign up on the VMS calendar for these different opportunities.
