Gardening Classes

Cornell Cooperative Extension 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.

We are committed to making all classes in our Horticulture Program Series 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 with permission of the presenter. In person only workshops will not be recorded.

We are working on making recordings of all classes available to non-registrants for a fee. Below is a list of past recordings available this way.
