Storm conditions last week caused us to cancel two information sessions which are the first step in the application process for becoming an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer in Durham County. The sessions have been rescheduled for Monday, September 24 at 2 p.m., and Tuesday, September 25 at 6 p.m.
Applicants must attend one information session. Remaining sessions are as follows:
September 18th, 10-11 am
September 20th, 6-7 pm
September 24th, 2 pm
September 25th, 6 pm
All sessions take place at the Durham County Extension office at 721 Foster Street in Durham. Advance registration is required. Call 919-560-0521 to register for a session.
Durham County Extension has nearly 100 volunteers in the Extension Master Gardener program. We help county residents learn more about a myriad of gardening topics, answer questions, conduct demonstrations and workshops, and help maintain a community garden at Briggs Avenue.
Once interns have completed their initial training, they volunteer 40 hours of their time to the community every year. Beyond their initial training experience, they are able to attend lectures and workshops offered by state and national experts.
