We moved the Master Gardener office yesterday. We are now sharing space with the poster printer. It's a nice area and I'm sure our Pesticide Safety testers will appreciate our old office. The new space for them will be a lot quieter and hopefully it'll help them concentrate better and pass their tests! Thanks to everyone who helped.
