The Joy of Gardening

New course offering in September.

The Joy of Gardening is a 10 week, self-paced online gardening program offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension. This course is perfect for gardeners who have some experience and want to discover more successful garden strategies. CCE video programs present much of the course material. Other resources, including suggested local, in person field trips, add to the course dynamic.

Course topics are below. In addition to the Cornell Extension instructor, students will have access to Master Gardener teaching assistants to answer course gardening questions.
