In 2010, Master Gardener General Training will be held every Tuesday evening from 5:30 to 8:30 pm from Feb. 2 through April 27. Half of the classes will be taught in Bristol, at the Kenosha County Center.  The other half of the classes will be taught in Ives Grove at the Racine County Office Building. The course is taught by University of Wisconsin Extension horticulture educators.

In addition to attending one of the orientation sessions, a signed commitment to 24-hours of volunteer work and a criminal background check are required prior to beginning the course. Volunteer hours must be on approved Master Gardener projects and completed by Oct. 1.  The course fee is $160, which covers the costs of all materials needed for the class. Class is limited to 40 participants.
