Master Gardener℠ Volunteer Training
Craven County, Fall 2021
All sessions will be held at the Craven County Agricultural Building, beginning at 9 a.m. 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 University regarding the Extension Master Gardener℠ program of Craven County:
The Master Gardener℠ volunteer 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. Email me at email@example.com for questions pertaining to this memo and the schedule.
All classes begin at 9 a.m. and are presented by Tom Glasgow except where noted.
