Dear Master Gardeners,
The biggest news of the month in the world of Jackson County Master Gardeners (in my opinion) is that the class of 2020 has finally graduated! This class has worked so incredibly hard and has endured so many challenges over the last year and a half. I extend a big congratulations to you all, and a very warm welcome as official OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers! Graduates include Lisa Brill, Sharon Bryson, Seán Cawley, Debbie Connolly, Mindy Folsom, Carolyn Gale, Ann Hackett, Lindsey Herberger, Karen Layfield, Linda Low, Barbara Lowe, Joanne Mitani, Lesley Moehle, Lucy Moore, Carolyn Piatt, Romina Ramos, Cas Toews, and Lora West.
While we could not meet to celebrate in person, we had a very fun graduation ceremony via Zoom (see photos!). We had a chance to connect, congratulate each other, and celebrate with our favorite gardening hats (and refreshments).
Congratulations to the class of 2020, you have certainly earned your certification as Master Gardener Volunteers!
