Growing Oregon Gardeners: Level Up Series:

This monthly zoom series kicked off in January 2021, offering education for the experienced gardener led by OSU horticulture experts from across the state. Take your gardening knowledge to the next level with timely topics from gardening in a changing climate to techniques to extend your season. The webinars will be broadcast via Zoom, the second Tuesday of the month, at 3 PM, January through November, 2021. The sessions will be recorded for those that cannot attend live. This series is open to the public, and OSU Extension Master Gardener volunteers receive 1 Continuing Education Credit for each class taken. You can take one, or take all. Cost is free. I do encourage you to register as soon as possible as we have found the day of registration does not work well. This monthly series is open to the public so feel free to invite your friends and family.
