The Annual Tennessee Master Gardener Winter School will be held February 17 through 20, 2010 in Murfreesboro, TN and hosted by Rutherford County (see below).
The theme for the 2010 Winter School is “sustainable solutions.” This theme refers to both sustainable gardening and sustaining volunteers in a membership organization. There will be two educations tracks: one for training MG members on garden-related programming and the other a leadership track that concentrates on coaching new leaders. The two tracks will be run successively (rather than concurrently) so attendees can participate in both educational tracks. There is also an optional pre-conference workshop Wednesday, February 17 on on the Tennessee Yards & Neighborhoods Program.
Winter school is open to all Master Gardeners and UT Extension personnel. Pre-registration is required by February 9, 2010. You can register online through the UT Master Gardener website or by completing and mailing in this registration form. The cost of the program is $75 for both tracks or $45 for one track.
