Hello, this is Donna Teasley, Horticulture Agent with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Burke Center.

The Extension Master Gardener program is a volunteer program that uses trained gardeners to assist with horticulture themed projects that the North Carolina Cooperative Extension carries out in Burke County.

Volunteers participate in many ways such as working at the fair, maintaining our community garden, assisting area schools and other organizations with horticulture projects.

You do not have to be an accomplished gardener to become an Extension Master Gardener. We’ll teach you what you need to know in a 13-week class where you’ll  learn scientific, research-based gardening techniques. Classes will take place on Wednesday mornings from nine until noon at the Burke County Agricultural building starting January 19.

Do you have a strong sense of community and the desire to help others improve their gardening skills? Have you recently moved to the area and need to learn how to garden in our climate? Perhaps you are retired and are looking for a group the become a part of where you will be useful while having fun.

If this sounds appealing, give our office a call for an application and more details at 764-9480. Don’t miss out on a life-changing opportunity that will give many hours of activity, comradery, and civic satisfaction.

This is Donna Teasley with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Burke Center. If you would like more information about this program, give us a call at 764-9480.
