Master Gardeners

Do you want to learn more about growing many types of plants? Are you looking for fun, yet rewarding volunteer work in your community? If so, the Pasquotank County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program is for you!

Certified Extension Master Gardener volunteers are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn, and help others. In exchange for their training, Certified Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers (40 hours the first year, 20 hours per year thereafter) and work through the Pasquotank County Cooperative Extension Center to provide horticulture-related information to the public.

Classes include training on vegetables, fruits, lawn or turf grasses, shrubs, trees, flowers, and landscaping. Classes also include training on insect and disease control, soil fertility, and many other aspects of the culture of ornamentals and vegetables.

The next Pasquotank County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer class will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., beginning on September 7th and ending December 21st. The cost for the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer training is $135.00. This fee covers the cost of an official name badge, class materials and a copy of the Extension Master Gardener manual. If you have a computer at your disposal you may use the on-line version of the manual and pay $75.00.

Participants are expected to attend all of the class sessions (a minimum attendance of  80% is required). After completion of all classes as well as the 40 hours of service, volunteers will be given opportunities to teach workshops, give demonstrations, assist at gardening shows and/or sales and many other gardening related activities.
