About the South Carolina Master Gardener Program
This volunteer training is divided into two parts: instruction and service.
Instruction: Participants receive at least 40 hours of intensive, practical horticultural training during the Master Gardener Training Course (MGTC). Topics covered in the MGTC include soils and plant nutrition, entomology, plant physiology, plant pathology, vegetable gardening, tree and small fruit culture, lawn management, the culture of woody ornamentals, and problem-solving. Satisfying the instruction component requires regular classroom attendance and passing a final exam.
Service: Participants will donate at least 40 hours of educational service in order to complete the program and receive the title of "South Carolina Master Gardener". The nature of the volunteer work may vary by county. Consult with your local Master Gardener Coordinator for specific requirements.
Following initial certification, there is an annual requirement of 20 hours of educational service and 10 hours of continuing education.

The South Carolina Master Gardener Class is currently offered in three (3) formats. Classes are generally offered 1-2 times per year, in the spring and/or fall.
In person classes are offered in counties in which a Master Gardener Coordinator is housed. A listing of counties and Master Gardener Coordinators can be found at:
The asynchronous online class provides the most flexibility in that there are no class meeting times. Presentations are recorded which allow you to log in when it is convenient. The class is arranged in modules. All modules must be completed in sequential order and within the specified class period. More information can be found at this link:
The live, virtual class is synchronous which means you must be virtually present. It is very similar to the in-person class in that there is a live instructor. More information can be found at this link:
