The Pickens/Oconee/Anderson Master Gardener program is a 17-week-long course meeting once per week on Mondays from January 27 through May 17, 2014. Classes typically last from 9 AM to 12 PM and meet at the SC Department of Natural Resources office in Clemson. Applicants can register now at: https://www.regonline.com/MGPOAS14

The Pickens/Oconee/Anderson Master Gardener Program includes training on the following topics:

  • Soils and Plant Nutrition
  • Botany and Plant Physiology
  • Basic Plant Pathology
  • Entomology
  • Vegetable Gardening
  • Tree and Small Fruit Culture
  • Culture of Woody Ornamentals
  • Lawn Management

After successfully completing the classroom portion, which includes regular attendance and passing a final exam, participants receive the title of "Master Gardener Intern". These interns are then required to volunteer at least 40 hours of educational service in the Clemson Extension office or in the community to become a Certified Clemson Extension Master Gardener. Volunteer activities are coordinated through the local county Extension office.

The mission of the Clemson Extension Master Gardener Program is to select, train, and utilize knowledgeable volunteers to facilitate the educational work of the local Consumer Horticulture Agent, by delivering research-based information to citizens of the state.
