Who are the Clarendon County Master Gardeners?
The membership organization of Clarendon Master Gardeners, namely, The Clarendon County Master Gardeners Association of South Carolina, is an educational, nonprofit, adult volunteer group that provides nonbiased, research-based horticultural information to the community. Clarendon Master Gardeners work in partnership with the Clemson University Extension Office as a service arm of Extension Horticulture. Members of the Association are residents of Clarendon County who are willing to learn and share gardening knowledge with diverse groups of people. What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture and their work in the community.Find us on Facebook, Clarendon County Extension - Horticulture.
