Coursework included in-person lecture, online presentations, video, textbook reading, self-assessment, small group work, and activities. Module objectives guide the adult learning experience, enabling participants to take an active role in the learning process. “These graduates have demonstrated a commitment to fulfilling the study requirements, investing in themselves and developing this gardening community,” stated Barbara Edmonds, Levy Extension Horticulture PA. “Look for Master Gardeners at Extension sponsored programs, sharing homeowner horticulture recommendations and information based on UF research based studies.”
