Today I embark on a new adventure.
For the next eleven weeks, I'll be in training to become a Travis County Master Gardener, i.e., trying to fit alllll the information in this great big book into my tiny little brain, with the help of educators and speakers from Texas A&M, Texas AgriLife Extension staff, Master Gardeners and more.
Provided I show up for the classes and pass the final, the real fun begins -- as an edumacated TCMG intern, I'll have a goal of completing 50 volunteer hours over the next year in service to my community, in order to disseminate allllll the information in that great big book to home gardeners in the Austin area.
And if I manage to accomplish all that by October 31, 2012, I'll have the title of Travis County Master Gardener bestowed upon me, with all attendant rights, privileges and responsibilities thereof.
Weee! Wish me luck!
