Advanced Master Gardener: Water
Training opportunity in Leesburg, VA.

The schedule of College did not permit us to offer the training there. However, training will be held in Leesburg, VA this September, sponsored by the Loudoun County Master Gardeners, but open to Master Gardeners from throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
