2020 Bull City Gardener Learning Series

— Written By

Ready to get growing? Come learn research-based, sustainable gardening practices with N.C. Cooperative Extension, Durham County Center.

The Bull City Gardener Learning Series is a great way for home and community gardeners to learn new tips and tricks while reviewing the basics. This series is focused on helping you manage ornamental and edible landscapes sustainably, all while improving soil health and reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides. Class content is developed from the latest research in applied horticultural science from NC State Extension and other land grant institutions

All classes are offered twice, once during the day and once on the weekend. Each session costs $6, which includes light refreshments and covers the costs of teaching materials. Participants will have access to multiple resources from NC State Extension.

Classes are taught by Extension Agriculture Agent Ashley Troth, with support from the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Durham County.

All classes will be held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Durham County office, 721 Foster St, Durham, NC 27701.
