Learn about gardening in the desert from master gardeners and professionals
Did some of your plants play Houdini over the summer and disappear? Is something bugging you? New to the desert and yearn for your roses?
Join the 2018 Superstition Mountain Master Gardeners Training Class. Classes will be held on Tuesdays from 1-4 p.m. from Jan. 16 – May 8, 2018, at Central Arizona College, Superstition Mountain Campus.
You’ll learn what plants do well in our desert, why October is the best planting month of the year and, yes, you really can grow vegetables in your desert garden. You may take the course strictly for your own benefit or go on to become a Superstition Mountain Master Gardener. Everyone is welcome, winter visitor and year round resident alike.
What’s a Master Gardener? It’s a person just like you who has completed the Master Gardener Course offered through the Co-operative Extension Bureau of the University of Arizona. Master Gardeners go on to volunteer and serve their communities in local projects such as Silly Mountain, Superstition Mountain Museum and Boyce Thompson Arboretum.
Our mentor program provides guidance as you navigate through the course. You’ll always have a mentor present in class to answer your questions.

Registration is open as of December 11, 2017.
