Workshops on lawn and garden topics for the general public and for industry professionals are continually offered by Cooperative Extension. Master Gardener workshops concentrate on residential gardening topics. In 2012, Delaware Master Gardeners volunteers provided a total of 18,805 professional hours throughout communities in Delaware, rendering a savings benefit of $352,969.85 to the First State. Typically hosted at one of our three county Extension offices, workshops conducted in cooperation with our partners may be held off campus and will be indicated on registration materials. Each season, Master Gardener volunteers plan new topics for the public. Many Delawareans travel across counties to attend workshops of particular interest.
