We have scheduled the following Pesticide Safety Education Programs (PSEP) training sessions in Buffalo County:
Master Gardeners are people who love plants, gardening, landscaping, and teaching others. To earn a title of Extension Master Gardener, individuals enroll in the program and receive 40 hours of training from University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty, then volunteer 40 hours of gardening and horticulture related work. There is a training fee which covers the training resources. No qualifications or prior knowledge about horticulture is needed for the class. The only requirement is a desire to share a love of gardening, learning, and a commitment to teach others about horticulture.
Food safety is in the news and on the minds of many people. Numerous foodborne illnesses have occurred in Nebraska during the last year. Most of the reported foodborne illness outbreaks have occurred from food eaten away from the home. The ServSafe® Food Safety Program is developed by the National Restaurant Association to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers for the food service staff that serve them.
