Adventures in Gardening

Join us for our annual Fall seminar from 8:30am to 4:00pm at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds. Our featured speaker is Frederick Rice, Garden Designer and Consultant. Learn about using structures as the garden's skeletal system as well as about using vines and climbers as attractive and unusual solutions for challenging garden dilemmas. Hear short talks about gardening in unusual places. The day will be complete with the construction of a Fall container to take home. For more about the day and to register see the information page. (Electronic and paper registration are both available.)

Attention Members


A new Purdue Master Gardener Program Policy took effect on September 15, 2014. Purdue has asked that we integrate all Master Gardeners into the new policy by September 2015. We now only have a few short weeks to get everyone who hasn't already complied integrated into the new policy. Master Gardeners who wish to remain active must take action before September 1, 2015!

Purdue Master Gardener volunteers in Hendricks County must:

  • Read the MG Program Policy Guide (MG-5-W). Download this from Purdue's Education Store.
  • Return completed and signed Purdue MG Volunteer Application and Agreement form to Angie Tilton (annual requirement)
  • Provide evidence of government-issued photo ID (one time requirement) This must be provided in person to the Purdue Extension.
For more information about the revised policies see the Policy Guide or watch a briefing video on You Tube. (about 27 minutes)
