Gardening Classes

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County offers dozens of classes each year about horticulture, agriculture, and homesteading. Bookmark this page, and save the date for your favorite topics. Links take you to each class's Event listing on our website, where you'll find a full description of the class and live registration links (one month in advance of the scheduled class date).

We are committed to making all the classes in our Horticulture Program financially accessible, so have moved to a pay-what-you-can model. Our classes are valued at $20. If you can afford to pay $20 or more, you are helping make these classes available to folks who cannot afford the full price. All registrants, regardless of payment level, will receive a video recording of the class.

ALL CLASSES ARE RECORDED SO IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE LIVE CLASS, YOU CAN STILL REGISTER AND WILL RECEIVE THE CLASS THE FOLLOWING DAY.
