All Are Welcome
Garden Master Classes are Open to Both Master Gardeners and the General Public
Garden Master Classes are offered through the UConn Extension Master Gardener Program. For Certified Master Gardeners they provide continuing education as part of the Advanced Master Gardener certification process.
These classes are also open to the general public. Anyone with an interest in gardening and horticulture is welcome!
The online catalog accepts credit card payments. If paying by check or money order, print out the receipt and mail it and your payment to:
UConn Extension Master Gardener Program
Attn: AMG/Master Classes
1376 Storrs Road, Unit 4036
Storrs, CT 06269-4036
Registrants will receive a confirmation email as well as a reminder about class a week in advance.
UConn Master Gardeners = $40.
General Public = Pays a little more (contact the Master Gardener Coordinator for cost)
Please direct inquiries about a specific class to the Extension Center sponsoring that class (listed as “contact” in the course listing).
Cancellation and Refunds
Nothing cancels a great class more quickly than everyone waiting until the last minute to register. Classes fill on a “first come, first served” basis. If enrollment is insufficient, classes are cancelled one week prior to the start date and a credit will be issued. Calling will not resurrect the cancelled class, so please register early! Every attempt will be made to notify registrants of a cancelled class via telephone or email; therefore, it is important to include both your daytime and evening telephone number as well as relevant email addresses in your profile.
Last-minute withdrawals and no-shows cause significant problems for the effective administration of the Master Classes. In order to receive credit toward a future class due to a student-initiated withdrawal from a course, the county coordinator or the state coordinator must be notified by phone or email at least three (3) business days before the class. No credits will be given without this prior notification. A $5.00 administrative fee will be deducted to process the credit. Credit coupon codes will be sent by email.
Walk-in registrations are taken only if there is room in the class; late registrants should check with the sponsoring coordinator before the class to determine availability. If you are not registered, we cannot notify you of any changes in time or location.
Class cancellations due to inclement weather are generally announced by email and recorded message. If you think that your class might be cancelled, please check your email and/or call the Extension Master Gardener office sponsoring the class.
Using Class Credits
To apply a class credit toward a new class, the user MUST provide the coupon credit code issued after a cancellation.
