Several local residents recently completed the first phase of the Elkhart County Master Gardener program through the Purdue Extension Service.

Program participants finished up four months of training classes and will now volunteer time to the community through holding several classes this winter and spring on gardening-related topics.

The 2013 Master Class includes Kay Bontrager-Singer, Dan Carlson, Sandra Copley, Dean Preheim-Bartel, Gwen Preheim-Bartel and John Sizemore, all of Goshen; Brian Christner of Wolcottville; Teresa Klein of Milford; Samantha Pound of South Bend; Bill Roberts of Elkhart; Heather Telschow of Wakarusa; Diana Thornton of Bremen; and Georgia Wier of Middlebury.

Those who wish to be placed on a mailing list for the upcoming classes may call the extension office in Goshen at 533-0554.

This bustling center of Palestinian life is just a 20-minute drive from Jerusalem, but for Israelis it might as well be on the other side of the world. (AP Photo/Nasser Nasser)
