By Tricia Nelson Anyone interested in plants, getting their hands dirty, and having fun will enjoy becoming a Master Gardener. One becomes a Master Gardner by taking a 40 hour class offered through a Mississippi State University (MSU) County Extension Office. There are multiple county extensions across the state and Copiah County will offer the class at the extension building in Gallman. Classes will meet every Tuesday and Thursday, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m., starting February 25 and running through March 31. Lectures will be conducted live through the MSU Video Extension System. The cost of the class is $100 which includes a binder with all lecture materials. For more information and to register for the upcoming class, contact the Copiah County MSU Extension office at 601-892-1809. Additional information about the Master Gardener program can be obtained by visiting the MSU Extension website at http://extension.msstate.edu/ms-master-gardener-volunteer.
