County cuts funding for master gardeners
Tough times call for tough decisions and the Dakota County Board of Commissioners has had to make plenty of those this year. One of those decisions was to cut funding for the popular Dakota County Master Gardner program.
On Dec. 14 the Dakota County Commissioners approved their 2011 budget. Part of that process was cutting funding to the University of Minnesota Extension, which pays for a staff person, Barbara Stendahl, to coordinate the master gardener program.
