Agriculture & Natural Resources
How can we assist with your Agriculture and Natural Resource needs?
Our goal is to assist and educate hobby farmers, businesses, homeowners, gardeners and Master Gardener Extension Volunteers with information about plant identification, plant diseases, insect identification, pest control, and soil and water testing. We offer Lunch & Learn classes, soil and water lab analysis, and consultations with a UGA Agriculture agent. Open each of the pages listed to the left to learn more about our services.
Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Program
Thank you for your interest in the UGA Extension Master Gardener course. Registration has closed for our 2024 Master Gardener class. Our program runs for three months and typically meets one day a week on Wednesdays from 9:30am to 3:30pm starting in mid-January and running through the end of March. The class is usually held in conjunction with Dekalb and Cobb Counties and may be partially taught in more than one county. This program has a one-time cost of $200 that includes materials and fees. If this fee is a problem, we encourage you to reach out for scholarship opportunities.
The application window for the 2025 Master Gardener class will open in early August 2024 to the end of September 2024. If you would like to register for the 2025 Master Gardener Program or would like further information about the program in general, please contact Lisa Klein at email@example.com
Teachers, how about a garden for your school?
Extension offers teachers excellent opportunities to start a school garden. We have experts to answer questions such as: Where will the funding come from? How big should it be? Who will tend the garden? How much time will it take to get results from the garden? For information about our school garden program, contact Kim Fritz at 678.377.4023 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
