This year’s crop of Master Gardener students has grown their skills even in the face of abrupt changes due to the Safer at Home policy. Volunteer Sue Kunz says that the first nine weeks of class were held as normal. The 10th week is usually a take-home exam, and students were able to pick up the test directly from Kunz’s home. The remaining classes wrapped up online using Zoom. Kunz says it’s the volunteer aspect of being a Master Gardener student that looks to be disrupted the most.
The Master Gardeners have already canceled next month’s plant sale.
