Plant Clinic

Wayne Extension
Master Gardener Volunteer Plant Clinic Open

Got gardening questions?  We have answers! The Wayne County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Plant Clinic will open for the 2016 season on Monday, April 4th. Volunteers are in the plant clinic during these times to assist the Wayne County residents with their home gardening questions. The plant clinic will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am to 1pm April through August. The plant clinic can be reached by phone at 919-731-1433, e-mail at Master.Gardener@waynegov.com or stopping by Room 100 of the Wayne County Extension Office (208 West Chestnut Street, Goldsboro). Wayne County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are trained volunteers for Wayne County Cooperative Extension. Volunteers are trained to provide educational gardening information from NC Cooperative Extension that is practical and reliable. Although volunteers do handle many types of gardening questions, there are a few types of questions that the volunteers are not trained to handle, including: indoor pests, commercial horticulture, hazardous tree evaluation, or medical/legal questions.
