Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County will hold its first Master Gardener Core Training class in three years from Sept. 6 through Oct. 1 on the campus of the State University New York at Fredonia.

The deadline to register is now Monday, May 30.

For an application, email or contact Lucia Conti at 664-9502, ext. 209, or stop into the Frank W. Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

Applicants will be interviewed by a team of Master Gardener volunteers in June and notified of their acceptance well in advance of the first class in September.

Class size is limited to 25.

There is an $85 fee for the class, with the first $25 due upon acceptance to cover the cost of training materials and the background check, which is required for all volunteers who represent Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua in the community.
