The Home Horticulture Lecture Series covers the same topics Certified Massachusetts Master Gardeners study as part of their training…but in a streamlined format tailored to gardeners with busy lifestyles:

    • Ten 1.5 hr. lectures – one evening per week for ten weeks
    • No required reading, homework, testing or volunteering

PLEASE NOTE: The Home Horticulture Lecture Series does not lead to Master Gardener certification. For more information on Master Gardener Training, click here.


  • All levels of experience, including first-time home gardeners
  • Homeowners looking to design or re-think their landscape
  • Gardeners looking to solve specific problems: pests, diseases, disappointing plant performance



  • Key fundamentals such as how to build great soil and how plants work
  • Practical how-to’s including basic landscape design, perennial selection and care, and combating weeds, diseases and pests
  • Free test of your soil’s pH by trained Master Gardeners – To perform at their best, many plants require soil with a certain “acidity score” (pH). Soil pH can be adjusted, or you can select plants suited to your current conditions.
