Gardening Webinars & Workshops

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 webinars and (post-COVID) 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.

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

Webinars are free. Participants will have access to recording of the webinars as well online resources from NC State Extension. Once COVID-19 has abated, we hope to return to in-person, hands-on workshops too! See this page for updates on future classes in fall and winter 2021/22!

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

While the information is researched-based, N.C. Cooperative Extension communicates this information so that it is practical and easy to understand.
