The Sampson County Friends of Horticulture are a series of classes and hands-on workshops designed to help beginner and advanced home gardeners learn the basics of gardening and landscaping. Participants will learn how to grow their own food supplies, test soils for nutrients, proper plant selection, pruning, pollinators, care and maintenance of existing landscape plants and trees.

All the information, demonstrations, and hands-on activities are from the latest research-based information from NC State University and surrounding land grant universities. Classes are presented by Brad Hardison, Extension Horticulture Agent in Sampson County, and other area County Extension agents. While the information is researched-based, N.C. Cooperative Extension exists specifically to transfer knowledge to the citizens of North Carolina in a manner that is practical and easy to understand.

Classes will be offered from January through October on the third Thursday of each month. The class will begin at 10 a.m. and last until noon. The classes will be taught at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Sampson County Center, 55 Agriculture Place, Clinton NC 28328 in the livestock facility conference room, greenhouse, and demonstration gardens.


The cost of a yearly membership is $20. If you forego a yearly membership, classes are $5 for each individual class. Please make checks payable to “The County of Sampson.”  If you are attending individual classes, please arrive a few minutes early to pay for the workshop. All fees are non-refundable and checks are subject to a $25 insufficient fund fee.


To register, call the office at 910 592-7161 and ask to register for the Sampson County Friends of Horticulture.
