Master Gardener

Stokes County Master Gardeners

Stokes County Extension Master Gardener volunteers work with N.C. Cooperative Extension to provide gardeners with unbiased, research based information on gardens, lawns and landscapes.

Under the guidance of our Agriculture & Natural Resources Agent, volunteers complete a 40 hour training program, pass an examination, and complete a 40 hour internship. To remain active in the program volunteers must log a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer service and 10 hours of continuing education each year.

If you would like more information about the program or have questions , please contact Bryan Hartman the Agriculture & Natural Resources Agent at Bkhartma@ncsu.edu  or by phone (336) 593-8179. Be sure to like us Stokes Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association on Facebook! Or feel free to check out the program handbook here: Stokes EMGV handbook

Our next Master Gardener classes will begin in February  2019!

You can usually find a Master Gardener at the King Farmer’s Market. Of course, you can always visit the SEEDS (Stokes Educational Exploration Dirtspot) Community Garden at King Recreation Acres in King, NC.
