Currituck Master Gardeners are currently designing the new Currituck Demonstration Gardens at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center on Community Way in Barco. The Currituck Demonstration Gardens are a teaching and demonstration garden for residents that will include displays of seasonally themed gardens.
The Currituck Master Gardener Volunteer Program is comprised of members of the volunteer staff of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension. They provide unbiased, research based educational assistance and programs in horticulture and environmental issues to the gardening public. The Extension Master Gardener Program allows the local Extension to extend education to an ever-increasing gardening audience. It also provides the local Extension center with a highly visible way to meet the public demand for information. Participants in the program must complete the training program, pass an examination, and volunteer through the local Cooperative Extension center a minimum of 40 hours the first year and 20 hours in subsequent years. The next class begins January 17, 2012. Contact Jan Perry-Weber at the Cooperative Extension office at 252.232.2262 for more information or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
