Carbon County gardeners looking to have fun, expand their knowledge and then share it with others are invited to become master gardeners.
A series of classes will kick off next month.
“We’re often asked ‘Why did you become a master gardener?’” says Slate Altenburg of West Penn Township, who has been a master gardener for six years.
He says the answer is pretty easy to understand.
“Most of us became master gardeners simply to have more fun with our own home, garden, lawn or landscaping, as well as get new ideas.”
