Extension Gardener is the brand name for the NC State Consumer and Community Horticulture program. Providing information and training to support gardeners in choosing plants that will thrive in their location, minimizing the need for fertilizers, pesticides, and maintenance while maximizing the beauty, food production, and environmental benefits of their gardens, lawns, and landscapes.

While NC State University provides the salary for one specialist and a coordinator for the Extension Master Gardener Program, there is no budget for staff, programs, equipment, supplies, or travel throughout the state. Give now to support the Extension Gardener Newsletter, Website, Plant Toolbox, Publications, and other outreach efforts.

Additional funding would enable us to expand our:

  • Scope: health (plants, people and communities), pollinators, wildlife, native plants, climate resiliance, reduced reliance on pesticides and fertilizer, and more,
  • Programming: preschool, therapeutic horticulture, community gardening, prison programs, and more
  • Outreach: media (audio, video, social media and podcasts), online and in-person classes, demonstration gardens, and more
