Gaston County will offer its next EMG Volunteer course, beginning February 21, 2022 (ending May 6, 2022). The hybrid course utilizes the award-winning Extension Gardener Handbook. Students will complete assignments online, while enjoying hands-on practical classes, in person, on Thursdays from 4:30–6:30 p.m. Course fee is $125 and must be received by February 11.

The first step to becoming a 2022 student is by submitting the application: 2022-GCMGV Application-fillable Upon completion, save and email to: julie_flowers@ncsu.edu  Students will be interviewed and selected for the course by the County Extension agent.
