Virtual Training Class

We're excited to offer the South Carolina Master Gardener Training class in a new, virtual format beginning in January of 2021.The class will differ from the current online class in that lessons will be synchronous. This means you will need to be virtually present during class meeting times. Tests and quizzes will be also be administered online. Please note this course is the first step to becoming a Certified South Carolina Master Gardener and enrollment in the class is a commitment to performing volunteer service.  More information can be found on the Volunteering Page.
