The Superstition Mountain Master Gardeners are offering their training class on Tuesdays, starting January 14th through May 12th from 1:00 pm - 4 pm at the Central Arizona College Superstition Campus in Apache Junction. Everyone is welcome, winter visitor and year round residents alike.

Total cost for this semester long class, including textbook, is $150.

The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension offers this class.

Join the Superstition Mountain Master Gardeners in this educational opportunity.

You’ll learn what plants do well in our desert, why October is the best planting month of the year, and yes - you really can grow vegetables in your desert garden.

You may take the course strictly for your own benefit or go on to become a Superstition Mountain Master Gardener. The choice is yours.

What’s a Master Gardener? It’s a person just like you that has completed the Master Gardener Course and has gone on to volunteer and serve their communities in local projects such as Silly Mountain, Superstition Mountain Museum and Boyce Thompson Arboretum.

You’ll have a mentor to help you through the course and it might just be your neighbor.

Here’s your chance to learn all about gardening in our glorious Sonoran Desert from Pinal County Cooperative Extension and University of Arizona professionals and Superstition Mountain Master Gardeners.
