Also offered this growing season, The Master Gardener Vegetable Gardening Practicum group meets weekly at Springfield Senior/Community Center on Tuesday mornings at 9:00 am.

Twice a month at that time, through June, the group will host “Veggie Garden Coffee Talks”. These are informal ‘roundtable’ gatherings of Master Gardeners and interested members of the community.
