I must admit that I have never heard of the Johnson County Extension Office - or maybe I have but never really understood who they were and what they did and quite frankly I am still confused.
But, tina at In the Garden, mentioned that I should look into it - and so the internet search began. Which, I must say, the Master Gardener Program and the local extension offices really lack a presence on the web. It took me a good while to find them and what I did find wasn't too entirely helpful. Maybe I am just a techie who relies way too much on the internet for all my information, but honestly if I can't Google it than I generally have no idea about it.
And this Master Gardener Program - what is it and why would someone want to be a Master Gardener? Is it for personal use or more for people who own greenhouses and nurseries where they sell plants to the public? Why would I want to pay $100 and go through all the fuss to become a Master Gardener?
Someone do fill me in on what I am missing here.
