Broward County Extention Volunteer Fair: May 11, 2019

Scientific Technicians Eileen Pokorny and Danyelle Fitzgerald volunteered their time to introduce the USDA, IPRL's Keep It Native Demonstration (K.I.N.D.) Garden to the newly graduated Master Gardeners of Class 2019. Master Gardeners need to complete the course materials with a passing grade, however they can only get their Master Gardener certification after volunteering 75 hours to a project of their choice. The IPRL KIND Garden is one of the approved volunteer projects which they can complete their certification.
