CRAVEN COUNTY EXTENSION
Craven County, Fall 2021
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:
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.
Please register through Eventbrite at
