The next Tri-County Master Gardener Training Course will begin Thursday, September 18, 2014. The Clemson Extension Master Gardener Training Course is a volunteer training program that requires 12 weeks of intensive instruction in fundamentals of basic horticulture and an additional 40 hours of volunteer service done over the next nine months to complete. Students selected for this training class will meet every Thursday from 10am-4pm at the North Charleston City Hall with occasional fieldtrips to various locations within the tri-counties. The training fee is $300 but no funds will be collected until students have been accepted into the class. All applicants will be contacted directly using the email and/or phone number provided by the applicant to arrange a personal interview. Interviews will be conducted mid August.
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 Urban Horticulture Agent by delivering research-based information to the citizens of the state. These knowledgeable volunteers work diligently to staff "Ask A Master Gardener" offices in each of the three county and are ready to help you with your gardening and horticulture questions!
