Indulge your horticultural interests while helping your community. Virginia Cooperative Extension is now accepting applications for the 2017 James City County/Williamsburg Master Gardener Training Program. Classes meet for 3 hours Monday and Wednesday mornings, Jan. 4 through March 27, 2017. Course topics include botany, pest management, plant culture, flowers,vegetables and more.
Extension Master Gardeners are trained volunteer educators. They work within their local communities to encourage and promote environmentally sound horticulture practices through sustainable landscape management education and training. As an educational outreach component of Virginia Cooperative Extension, the Master Gardener program brings the resources of Virginia’s land-grant universities – Virginia Tech and Virginia State University – to the people of the commonwealth. All volunteers are trained and have at least 50 hours of horticultural classes and return at least 50 hours of volunteer community service through their local Extension office.
