A new class of Extension Master Gardener volunteers has graduated in Burke County. The nineteen participants attended a thirteen-week program of classroom work and hands-on activities before becoming Master Gardeners. As Extension Master Gardener volunteers they will give volunteer hours to the North Carolina Cooperative Extension here in Burke County that will assist the Extension staff in better meeting the needs of Burke County residents’ gardening needs. Burke County is one of 84 counties in North Carolina with a Master Gardener program and the class is held once a year, starting in January.

These volunteers under the leadership of Extension Horticulture Agent, Donna Teasley work with churches, schools, county fairs and other groups to educate people on how to become more successful gardeners.

The Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program has been active in Burke County since 2003 and has produced more that 275 Master Gardeners during that time. These community-minded gardeners are a valuable asset to Cooperative Extension and are one of our greatest resources.
