2016 Master Gardener Class

The schedule for the 2016 Master Gardener class for the Cabell County Master Gardener Association has been set. Debbie Martin and Jane Wilson, chairs of the CCMGA education and certification committees have arranged for a range of gardening education speakers. These presenters are county agents, university faculty and local gardening experts.

Unless otherwise noted, all classes will be on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 9:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall of Enslow Park Presbyterian Church (1338 Enslow Blvd Huntington WV 25701). Park in the lot in the back of the church and enter through the door at the rear of the building then come up the stairs to the Fellowship Hall. An elevator is available to anyone who needs it.

The cost for the class is $100 which provides the comprehensive manual, the name badge and certificate upon completion and all other costs of the course.  Students cannot miss more than 2 classes total in order to graduate. Class will be cancelled if Cabell County Schools are closed for a snow day. 

In addition to the courses, there is a 40 hour volunteer service requirement to becoming a Certified Master Gardener.  You have a full year to satisfy this requirement. Jane, Debbie and other speakers will give you more information on meeting this service obligation.
