2019-20 FHGC Year-End Slideshow

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the 2019-20 FHGC year was cut short and our lives were impacted by quarantining and social distancing.  However, there were some pictures that I was able to get together for a slideshow and here's the link:

2021 Master Gardener Training

Master Gardener Training
Craven County, Fall 2021

(NOTE: Contact regarding the Master Gardener’s Course! Jane Haeussler @ 633-4561)
All sessions will be held at the Craven County Agricultural Building, beginning at 9 AM and concluding at noon, with the exception of a couple of 2-hour sessions.

Classes will be held
on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but not every 
Tuesday & Thursday, so be sure to look over the schedule closely.

We will practice social distancing and we request that you wear a mask if you have not been vaccinated.

Be sure to visit the two links below for important information from NC State regarding the Master Gardener program:
https://emgv.ces.ncsu.edu/2021/04/become-an-extension-master-gardener-volunteer-5/
https://content.ces.ncsu.edu/north-carolina-extension-master-gardener-volunteer-program-guidelines
The Master Gardener notebook is optional, but there is a $50 state fee for all enrollees.
For procedural reasons, this fee is not included in the Eventbrite registration.
Some students become concerned when they have to miss one or two classes.

From our perspective, we expect almost everyone will end up missing a class here and there.

We ask that you do your best to get to the total of 40 hours of class time, and we’ll do our best to present an excellent educational experience.

Many other questions will no doubt arise, most of which we can best handle once we get started with classes.

E-mail me at:  [email protected]
for questions pertaining to this memo and the schedule.
