Home gardeners can learn directly from Master Gardeners through the El Paso Community College (EPCC) Continuing Education Program. Master Gardeners share their expertise in topics such as soil improvement, turf grass, vegetable gardening, native and adapted plants, xeriscaping, herb and container gardening, fertilizers, and pesticides in this sixteen-hour non-credit course offered on Saturday mornings.
While many courses have converted to online classes, we are pleased to offer this class in person with face-to-face instruction. Also, our class size has been expanded, so we’re looking forward to welcoming more students than we have in recent semesters. Tell your friends!
