NEW CASTLE — Penn State Extension is planning a master gardener training session for October.

The program’s purpose is two-fold. One is to provide the opportunity to learn more about gardening. The other is to better serve the county by having skilled gardeners available to teach those who are less experienced.

Weekly three-hour classes will begin Oct. 3 and run through Feb. 27.

ln return for the course, participants are asked to volunteer their time with the Penn State Extension’s home horticulture program.

Application forms are available at the extension office in the courthouse, by calling (724) 654-83780 or emailing

Completed applications must be returned to the extension office by Tuesday.
