WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: The Home Hort Series covers the same topics as Master Gardener Training but in a streamlined format. No outside reading, homework, testing or volunteering required. Just 1-1/2 hrs. one night per week. Here’s a sample of what we’ll be covering:

  • Important fundamentals such as building great soil and how plants work
  • Practical how-to’s like basic landscape design, perennial selection and care, and combating weeds, diseases and pests

INSTRUCTORS are certified Massachusetts Master Gardeners with years of hands-on experience and a wealth of best practices, personal tips and suggested resources to share.

WHY CHOOSE A FALL PROGRAM? With the intensity of summer gardening behind us, fall is the perfect time to reflect on successes and challenges, take advantage of garden center bargains, improve your soil, and control many perennial weeds. And you have the whole winter ahead of you to read, catalog-shop and plan your 2019 garden!

COST: The cost of the 10-lecture series is $250, payable by credit/debit card or Pay Pal. That averages out to just $25 each for the ten sessions.
