Wolf River Master Gardeners might sound a little intimidating, but sisters Janet Kahlow and Linda Meisner said that is not the case.
“I find it fun and I enjoy the camaraderie,” said Kahlow, who is the president of the club.
The Master Gardener program, typically offered through universities in the United States and Canada, provides intense home horticulture training to individuals who then volunteer in their communities, giving lectures, creating gardens, conducting research and developing other projects.
The University of Wisconsin-Extension offers the Master Gardener program in Shawano County. The Wolf River group has 17 members. Other officers are Jackie Johnson, vice president, Deb Laehn and Mary Nordin, co-secretaries, Don Bublitz, treasurer, and Meisner, historian.
The sisters became Master Gardeners in 2011 after taking a nine-week class for three hours one night a week.
