A DAY IN THE YARD (DITY) COURSE IS FOR YOU!
The Master Gardeners of Brunswick County offer a unique horticulture class for Brunswick County residents. The class provides the basic knowledge needed to maintain a yard and garden in our coastal plain of North Carolina
This class is shorter and less expensive than the Master Gardener class and contains less science and more “how to” content. Entitled “A Day in the Yard”, the course is offered for people interested in learning more about maintaining their yard and garden but not able to commit to the full responsibilities of becoming a Master Gardener.
The cost of the class is $75.00. The proceeds from the class go to the Brunswick County Master Gardener Volunteer Association.
The class includes 6 – 2 ½ hour segments utilizing power point presentations and handouts. Each individual class is taught by a Master Gardener who might even be your neighbor.
