PEC Master Gardeners announce suspension on New Memberships until Spring 2021:

Due to the overwhelming interest in gardening during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had an unprecedented number of applicants. We are unable to support further new members at this time because of the changes in volunteering opportunities due to the pandemic. We are therefore suspending our memberships until the spring 2021. If you are interested in becoming a Master Gardener, please contact us and we will be pleased to place your name on the waiting list.

Thank you for your understanding.
