Master Gardener Volunteer Training

— Written By Taylor Williams

Moore County will offer Extension Master Gardener class at the Agricultural Center in Carthage, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings beginning Tuesday, September 23, and ending Tuesday, November 18. The 40 hour training covers practical aspects of gardening and landscaping. We emphasize sustainable and organic methods of gardening. Those who take the class are expected to donate 20 hours of volunteer service in the youth gardening programs or client “helpline” duty, and an additional 20 hours in other Extension horticulture programs. There is a $150 fee for training materials for those accepted into the program. An application may be downloaded here:
