Six Victoria Master Gardeners are the first graduates of the VMGA Advanced Training Program:

Congratulations to Nancy, Lee, Keren, Charlotte, Debbie and Gail (not in photo)!

These grads completed 120 hours of advanced training, and are the first of a large group of Master Gardeners from Victoria who will soon be joining them as Advanced Master Gardeners. Here are some of the kudos for the Advanced Training Program mentioned by these graduates:

‘To the 5 other ‘grads’ of the ATP program: I look forward to standing up with you at the recognition ceremony on Sunday afternoon. Yippee!!! We’ve done it; but expect I’ll continue along (no doubt with some of you nearby) with the various and interesting electives and other master classes. It has really enriched my involvement with the VMGA. It’s been so good to get together with you and the many other ATP class participants on this educational journey.’

‘I am also adding my appreciation to all of the ATP Committee and many others that have helped us move through this opportunity, either in actions, thoughts or financial assistance (through the Semi Annual Plant Sale) I enjoyed the program, looked forward to participating and loved every single minute. ‘

‘The whole program was conducted with professionalism, lots of enthusiasm and the most important, it was well thought out, prepared and presented with great instructors. The amount of work involved was tremendous and I thank the committee so much for their dedication!!’
