Local area horticulture agent Gene Fox and the Beaufort County Extension Master Gardener volunteers will host an introductory gardening class, “Learn to Grow in Your Space,” from 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, in the Hyde County Extension Center and teleconferenced for Ocracoke in the Community Center.

This class will teach a brief overview of soils, vegetables, fruits, and turf in our area.

The class will serve as an introduction to growing in the home landscape. More in-depth classes will be taught in the fall to advance your knowledge from beginner to intermediate gardener.
