Gardening Classes

Through the Master Gardener Program, volunteers learn gardening essentials that they then pass on to the community. Master Gardeners complete service projects such as the Extension Rain Garden and the 6-acre Woodland Garden at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.


The Extension office also offers other gardening classes throughout the year. Contact the staff assistant to sign up for gardening classes email notifications.
