Clemson Extension Service is currently taking applications from York County Residents for the Master Gardener Class.
The Master Gardener program is open to all adults regardless of gardening experience. Participants learn about all aspects of gardening from soils, to growing vegetables, fruits, trees, shrubs, flowers and lawns. They also learn about garden pests, beneficial insects, plant physiology and more.
The fee for the class will be $300.00 payable upon acceptance into the course. The fee will cover the cost of materials and literature that participants will receive. In addition to the fee, those individuals successfully completing the program will be required to volunteer a minimum of 40 hours in service to the community which would include answering gardening questions from consumers, community beautification projects, or other gardening activities sponsored by the Extension Service.
