You might think you would need to be a master of gardening to become a volunteer in NC Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardener Program. Not true! The training we provide gives you everything you need to join our team. Once trained, you will be prepared to help out with our demonstration gardens, youth education projects, community outreach, gardening newsletters and much more. You will also join a group of very friendly people who love to keep on learning. You can learn more and meet some of our members at the following events:

  • Open House in Warrenton on June 13th, 11 am to 1 pm at the NC Cooperative Extension Office (158 Rafters Ln. in Warrenton).
  • Open House in Henderson on June 27th, 11 am to 1 pm at the NC Cooperative Extension office (305 Young St. in Henderson).
  • Information table at the Warren County Farmers Market on June 10th.
