Classes will not meet on November 23, 2017, or December 21 & 28, 2017.
Due to the popularity of the Master Gardener program and limited seating (up to 30 participants), registration for the Master Gardener Training Class is a two-step process. First, applicants must complete the application below by June 30, 2016, to be considered. Master gardener representatives will then contact applicants via telephone to explain the program, answer any questions or concerns of the applicant, and verify applicant's desire to proceed with registering for the program.
The training course fee is $300.00. Fees will be collected after applicants have been contacted by master gardener representatives and registered for the class online. No refunds will be given once the class begins.
About the Master Gardener Program
The Clemson Extension Master Gardener Program trains, selects, and utilizes knowledgeable volunteers to facilitate the educational work of the local Consumer Horticulture Agent, by delivering researched-based information to citizens of the state.
The services undertaken by Master Gardeners vary according to Clemson Extension’s priorities, community needs, as well as the abilities and interests of the individuals. Current Master Gardener projects include phone support at the Extension Office, "Ask a Master Gardener" events, presentation of programs to garden clubs and other groups, as well as an annual symposium, basic-gardening lecture series, and plant sale. Volunteers lend their expertise at various community gardens, including the gardens of Roper Mountain Science Center and the Children’s Garden at Linky Stone Park.
