Landscape and Garden: Amy Jo Detweiler conducts the landscape and gardening program from the Deschutes County Extension office in Redmond. This includes programming for the central Oregon landscape and golf industries, as well as conducting the Master Gardener program.
Providing seminars, workshops, publications are only some of the ways Central Oregon Horticulture Program provides education to residents of Jefferson, Crook and Deschutes Counties. The OSU Master Gardener Program training is offered annually in the tri-county area for those interested in a volunteer opportunity. Locally, volunteers assist at the Madras Saturday Markets which start the first weekend in June through the second week-end in September. Also, in Madras, Central Oregon Agriculture Research Station has a Demonstration Garden that is available for the public to learn from and enjoy, as well as have local schools come and take field trips.
See Central Oregon Horticulture Program for more information.
