Home Horticulture:

At N.C. Cooperative Extension, we aspire to bring the research of NC State University and N.C. A&T State University to Dare County. Extension delivers trusted information directly into the hands of horticulturalists and agribusinesses, helping them translate knowledge into solutions that grow our economy and communities. Through the Extension Master Gardener℠ program of Dare County, participants are trained as volunteers who provide educational assistance and programming to Dare County citizens on a wide variety of subjects such as lawns, fruits, vegetables, trees, and ornamentals.

Commercial Horticulture:

Landscape professionals create, install, and maintain meaningful and functional spaces by using sustainable design principles and pragmatic solutions that address poor soils, confined spaces, and ever-changing climatic factors. Homeowners often need additional tools to select the right plants for their site, to install them correctly, and to employ proper management tactics. The commercial horticulture program in Dare County provides direct and indirect assistance to help professionals and consumers deal with their unique challenges with knowledge-based in research.

There are now “Online Credit Options Available” for pesticide training. Please visit the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences website to learn more. This is a great opportunity if you’re searching for continuing education credits during this time of social distancing.
