The course usually runs weekly on Thursday nights from 6:00 p.m. for three months. Once your application is reviewed, you’ll be contacted about completing the registration process. The course fee is $55 which includes a free online manual. You can purchase a physical textbook for an additional cost. Previous gardening experience isn’t necessary. In order to become an official Master Gardener℠ volunteer, 40 hours of volunteer service are mandatory in the year following the course. Applications are available online or at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Randolph County office at 1003 South Fayetteville Street, Asheboro NC 27203.
