Master Gardener Program

The Master Gardener program is open to all adults regardless of gardening experience. Participants learn about all aspects of gardening from soils, to growing vegetables, fruits, trees, shrubs, flowers and lawns. They also learn about garden pests, beneficial insects, plant physiology and more.

There is a fee for the class payable upon acceptance into the course. The fee will cover the cost of materials and literature that participants will receive. In addition to the fee, those individuals successfully completing the program will be required to volunteer a minimum of 40 hours in service to the community which would include answering gardening questions from consumers, community beautification projects, or other gardening activities sponsored by the Extension Service

The Master Gardener program for York, Chester and Lancaster counties is accepting applications for the 2021 class which starts Aug. 4th.  Applications are due by June 1.

Classes will be held at the Glencairn Garden Learning Center, 825 Edgemont Ave., Rock Hill. Classes are from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. every Wednesday through Nov. 10.
