Interested in gardening?

Learn about sustainable, science-based gardening practices from N.C. Cooperative Extension, Chatham County Center

Extension Gardener classes are a series of lectures and hands-on workshops for home and community gardeners. Using the latest research in applied horticultural science from NC State Extension and other land grant institutions, participants will learn how to grow food sustainably and learn about native plants that support beneficial insects, birds, and other wildlife.

Classes emphasize environmentally-friendly practices, including improving soil health, reducing use of fertilizers and pesticides, increasing landscape biodiversity, and other goals aligned with the Chatham County Comprehensive Plan.

Most classes are offered twice, once during the day and again in the evening. Each session costs $6 or $10, which includes light refreshments and covers the costs of teaching and demonstration materials. Participants will have access to online and printed resources from NC State Extension.

Classes are taught by Horticulture Extension Agent Matt Jones, with support from the Master Gardener℠ volunteers (MGVs) of Chatham County.

While the information is researched-based, N.C. Cooperative Extension exists specifically to transfer knowledge to the citizens of North Carolina in a manner that is practical and easy to understand.

Classes are taught at the Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center (1192 US 64 W Business in Pittsboro).
