Attention Members

Your Action Required before September


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. As you know, we have been without a Master Gardener Coordinator as the Ag/Natural Resources Extension Educator position has been vacant until recently. That means, we now only have a few short months to get everyone integrated into the new policy. This means all Master Gardeners who wish to remain active must take action before September 1, 2015!

What is required? All Hendricks County current and new Purdue Master Gardener volunteers 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).
For more information about the revised policies see the newsletter, the Policy Guide, or watch a briefing video on You Tube. (about 27 minutes)
