Awards are given out every two years at the international conference. We will receive ours next July when Oregon plays host to 1,200 attendees of the 2017 International Master Gardener Conference.
This honor culminates ten years of hard work. In 2006, a founding committee consisted of Bill Bradley (chair), Kathi Cardinalli, Jane Collier, Herb Davis, Denise Dwan, Laura Eyer, Louise Hargens, Jean Natter, and Sherry Sheng (co-chair) laid a solid foundation.
In recent years, the core team of instructors and curriculum developers included Darlene Reimer, Jane Collier, Laura Eyer, Sherry Holley, and Sherry Sheng. They were ably assisted by Ann Upton, Sharon Wiley, Frank Wille, and Marianne Kahl who steadfastly provided logistical support at our educational events featuring 10-Minute University.
The program grew and thrived since 2006 due largely to two core values: allegiance to research-based information and continuous improvement. Current and past members of the OSU faculty review our handouts to ensure quality. Written evaluations of clients help to assess the past and chart new directions.
Strong, sustained financial and moral support from the Clackamas Chapter allowed 10-Minute University to become an award-winning program.
Congratulations to the 10-Minute University team!
This award is presented to one OSU Master Gardener from each County by the Oregon Master Gardener Association working cooperatively with Oregon State University. This annual award recognizes outstanding dedication and service of an OSU Master Gardener at the county level.

Recognizing one of our hardworking Spring Garden Fair committee members for a job well done during our annual fund raiser.
This is the highest award presented to an Oregon Master Gardener. The Oregon Master Gardener Association and Oregon State University present the award cooperatively. This annual award recognizes outstanding and unusual service benefiting the Oregon Master Gardener Association and the OSU Master Gardener Program.
This annual award recognizes an OSU Master Gardener who works quietly and unselfishly behind the scenes to further the OSU Master Gardener Program on a county or state level. This is not a person who is out in front working on projects so everyone knows their contributions.
Rather it is a person whom few may actually know the level of their contributions.
Congratulations on your well deserved recognition!
