First Friday Garden Seminars

On the first Friday of each month we cosponsor, along with the Clemson Extension Service and the City of  Rock Hill Parks, Recreation, & Tourism Department, an educational seminar on garden-related topics.  We meet in-person at the Glencairn Garden Learning Center, 825 Edgemont Avenue, Rock Hill, SC.  Starting at 11:00 a.m. these programs are free of charge and open to all.

We offer the same seminars each first Friday from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Clover Library, 107 Knox Street.  As seating is limited, you must pre-register for each presentation.  Contact Victoria Howard at 803-222-3474 or  You can also register online through the library's events calendar.
