— 1 hour away

The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer a forestry workshop entitled Dialing Down Intensity in Woodland Management: a Case for Restoration and Resilience as part of its Enhancing Sustainability Series on Monday, August 31, 2015 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the Agriculture Building in Pittsboro (65 East Chatham St., Pittsboro, NC 27312). Workshop presenters include NC State University Forestry Specialists Dr. Robert Bardon and Dr. Mark Megalos.

Why am I always told it is best to manage for pine? Why can’t I grow hardwoods? These are just a couple of questions asked by many landowners when it comes to woodland management. Come hear Dr. Bardon and Dr. Megalos speak about ways to reduce the intensity of woodland management on your property in order to improve diversity within your forest. Dr. Bardon will review what types of sites are best for growing hardwood trees, basic tree management, and species selection. Dr. Megalos will review the case for more extensive (less intensive) forestry across the landscape in order to promote hardwoods.

There is no cost to attend the workshop but a RSVP is required. To RSVP, send an email to extension.programs@chathamnc.org and put “forestry” in the subject line.

Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Training to Begin September 1, 2015

North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Hoke County Center, in cooperation with the Robeson County Center of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service will be offering Extension Master Gardener Volunteer training on Tuesdays beginning September 1 – November 24, 2015, from 9 a.m. – 12 noon. According to Howard Wallace, Cooperative Extension Director, Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers, and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people. What really sets Extension Master Gardener Volunteers apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture and willingness to educate others. In exchange for their training, persons who become Extension Master Gardener Volunteers contribute time as volunteers, working through their Cooperative Extension Center to provide horticultural-related information to the public.

Is the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program for you?

To help you decide if you should apply to be an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer, ask yourself these questions:
• Do I want to learn more about the culture and maintenance of many types of plants?
• Am I eager to participate in a practical and intense training program?
• Do I look forward to sharing my knowledge with people in my community?
• Do I have enough time to attend training and to complete the volunteer service?
If you answered yes to these questions, the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program could be for you.

Training
If accepted into the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program, a registration fee of $125 is required and you will attend a Master Gardener training course. Classes are taught by Cooperative Extension staff, local experts, and Master Gardener Volunteers. Seats in the training course are limited, as only 20 participants can be accommodated. Application for admission is required. Application deadline is August 17th. Registration fee is due in full by the first day of class.

The program offers a minimum of 40 hours of instruction that covers topics including lawn care; ornamental trees and shrubs; insect, disease, and weed management; soils and plant nutrition; vegetable gardening; home fruit production; garden flowers; and water conservation.

You will also receive a notebook of comprehensive horticultural subjects. It will be a valuable tool in answering homeowners’ plant questions.

Volunteer Commitment
Once you successfully complete the training program and pass the final exam, you will begin a volunteer internship. During your internship, you will learn even more about plants and people.

Extension Master Gardener Volunteers function as resource individuals for horticultural questions in their local Extension Center. Their efforts serve to multiply the capabilities of county educators.

What Are the Types of Volunteer Activities?
• Diagnosing plant, insect, and disease problems
• Staffing plant clinics and educational exhibits
• Operating a telephone hotline in your local county Extension Center
• Designing a demonstration or community garden
• Giving lectures on various gardening topics
• Bringing the joys of gardening to senior citizens or young families
Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are representatives of N.C. Cooperative Extension. In all volunteer work related to the program, Extension Master Gardener Volunteers follow the research-based recommendations of Cooperative Extension. The title, Extension Master Gardener Volunteer, can be used by volunteers only when engaging in Extension-sponsored activities.

Who Can Become an EMGV?
Individuals with an interest in both gardening and volunteer service are potential candidates for the program. No previous formal training is necessary.
This program does not discriminate in regard to race, color, creed, national origin, religion, sex, age, veteran status, disability, or sexual orientation. Resources, however, limit the number of people that can be accepted. Applications are screened to select the best candidates to perform the volunteer staff needs of the local Cooperative Extension Center
.
Why Should I Become an EMGV?
You will become knowledgeable about a wide array of gardening subjects. The practical training is designed to increase your confidence and horticultural skills, enabling you to assist the public with questions and problems involved with gardening. Volunteer service helps your community and you derive the pleasure and reward of working with others who share your interests.

Volunteers also participate in advance Extension Master Gardener Volunteer training classes and field trips. Developing new ways to participate assures you that the learning process and the opportunity for satisfaction never end.

For more information, or to receive an application for admission, please contact Howard Wallace, Cooperative Extension Director, at 910-875-3461 prior to August 17th, 2015.

NC Cooperative Extension JC Raulston Arboretum, 4415 Beryl Road, Raleigh, NC 27606.
— Tomorrow


Bryce Lane, Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor Emeritus and Lecturer Emeritus, Department of Horticultural Science, NC State University

Knowing the art and science of plant identification and plant nomenclature (names) makes all kinds of gardeners (novice all the way to hard core) more successful in their gardening endeavors. This class will equip you with the basics of plant identification, allowing you to expand and enhance your plant identification skills and abilities. By knowing some basic plant anatomy and morphology you will be able to tell the difference between all kinds of plants that at first glance appear to be very similar and therefore confusing ("is that a boxwood or a Japanese holly?") We will spend lots of time every week in the "outdoor classroom" called the JC Raulston Arboretum looking at, and identifying plants. Don't worry, you will learn a lot plus it'll be lots of fun!

Bryce Lane, Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor Emeritus and Lecturer Emeritus, Department of Horticultural Science, NC State University

Knowing the art and science of plant identification and plant nomenclature (names) makes all kinds of gardeners (novice all the way to hard core) more successful in their gardening endeavors. This class will equip you with the basics of plant identification, allowing you to expand and enhance your plant identification skills and abilities. By knowing some basic plant anatomy and morphology you will be able to tell the difference between all kinds of plants that at first glance appear to be very similar and therefore confusing ("is that a boxwood or a Japanese holly?") We will spend lots of time every week in the "outdoor classroom" called the JC Raulston Arboretum looking at, and identifying plants. Don't worry, you will learn a lot plus it'll be lots of fun!
