These classes are set up differently than our pre-recorded workshops above. They are more in depth, significantly longer, and some of them can be used towards certification. These courses are designed to help beginning and experienced gardeners alike.
All courses are open to all members of the general public.
All of these are ongoing intake classes so you can register to begin any of them at any time. The dates listed in the registration system are just for tracking purposes.
You don't need to be registered in the Master Gardener program to take Master Gardener certification courses (MGCC). Any course you take will stay on your records. Should you decide to certify later, any MGCC you have taken will count towards your certification. Keep in mind that educational credits do expire after ten years so you may need to retake a class if you decide much later to certify.

Want to work towards certification, online? We have two options for you.
