Agreement
I wish to become a Post Rock District Extension Master Gardener Trainee and would be available for the training sessions Thursdays in February and March, located in Salina, KS for 8 weeks. The training runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.

I understand that if accepted into the Training Program, I am entering into a contract to return 40 hours of volunteer time in communicating research-based horticultural information to the public by April 1, 2020 following the basic training course completion. I further understand that continuation as an active Master Gardener in good standing requires completion of both 8 hours of Advanced Master Gardener Training and a minimum of 20 volunteer hours annually.

Master Gardener volunteers may not participate in the Post Rock District Extension Master Gardener Program for personal gain or for commercial recommendations or endorsements. Master Gardeners are expected to provide recommendations based on research-based information and to provide educational program assistance in support of the general District Extension education program.

Master Gardeners operate under the control of a trained Extension professional responsible for monitoring their performance and the progress of their continuing education.
