Classes cover topics in botany, soils, flowers, trees, shrubs, lawns, vegetables, fruits, entomology, pesticide safety and diagnosing plant problems. Following the course, you will enjoy volunteering in the community by working with local Extension Master Gardener volunteers on a variety of projects that educate the public about gardening and horticulture.
