I have modified an info sheet that Audrey Holt prepared some years ago and which still contains valuable information for members about the Seminar.
Each year since 1995, the Baxter County Master Gardeners have presented a community seminar now titled "Developing an Ozark Green Thumb.'' This seminar is an educational opportunity for area residents covering various aspects of Ozark gardening. This year the seminar will be held on Saturday, March 11. Set-up for the seminar is on Friday, the day before from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
Because this is a sanctioned project, any time you work at the seminar during these two days earns hours toward the twenty (20) work hours required of Master Gardeners for the year, or toward the forty (40) hours required of new master gardeners. When you are not working but rather watching and listening to the seminar, you will earn hours toward the twenty (20) learning hours that are required for the year.
Other means of earning work hours in seminar related activities include the following:
1. In the planning phase of the seminar we will have a number of committees that will be looking for workers. Time contributed to any of these committee efforts will constitute work hours. You may expect to be called by one or more committee chairpersons seeking your assistance.
2. Each Master Gardener who attends the seminar is expected to donate finger food to be used during seminar breaks. Bring these finger foods [such as muffins, bars, cookies, coffeecakes, veggies with dip, fruit] in serving size pieces. Diabetic foods or gluten free foods should be so labeled. Your food donations may be brought in on set-up day or on the morning of the seminar. These donations will be your entrance ticket to the seminar, and the preparation time in making the finger food may be counted as work hours.
It is hoped that all of the Baxter County Master Gardeners will participate in the seminar in some manner, and it is especially desired that master gardeners will use this opportunity to become better acquainted with fellow members.
To ensure enough handouts are available at the seminar, master gardeners who plan to attend and would like to have a seminar packet are required to sign up ahead of time.
The seminar is a success each year due to the efforts of the entire group.
