Successful Gardener 2024 Calendar

In 2024 the Successful Gardener classes will be mix of live virtual Zoom presentations and in person programs at the Union County Extension Classroom 3230 Presson Rd, Monroe 28112. All of the Successful Gardener programs will start at 7:00 pm occurring on the first Thursday of each month. Advance registration is required to attend. More information for each class can be found here the month before the class. Classes are free and open to the public. The virtual and hybrid (virtual and in person) presentations will be recorded and posted on the NC Cooperative Extension YouTube channel if you are unable to make the meeting. Also if the Event Brite registration option is full, please consider signing up for the virtual Zoom class.
