EPCC Class

Master Gardener Community College Class Outreach Program

Home gardeners can learn directly from Master Gardeners through the El Paso Community College (EPCC) Continuing Education Program.  Master Gardeners share their expertise in soil improvement, turf grass, vegetable gardening, native and adapted plants, xeriscaping, herb and container gardening and fertilizers and pesticides in this non-credit course offered on Saturdays.  Class information will be posted on this page or you can check the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Class Schedule a few weeks before the start of each semester for details.

For online access, you may go to EPCC’s web page on online catalogs and follow links to the current semester’s Schedule – Continuing Education. In the online schedule, use the search field to look for “home gardening” and you’ll find the Home Gardening in El Paso class.
