    Welcome, Donna. I completed my Master Garden courses at Dutchess County in combination with Orange County Students. Nice to have someone from the same neck of the woods. I have participated in only a couple of master gardener activities in Suffolk County but look forward to learning about what is going on so that I may join in again. Good luck.
