Horticulture Education Series

Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County offers dozens of classes each year about horticulture, agriculture, food preservation, and more. Visit our events page for current programs! All registrants, (regardless of payment level) will receive a video recording of the class with permission of the presenter for hybrid . Hands-on workshops will not be recorded and may have a required materials fee.

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, fill out this form, make sure to put the class(es) you'd like in the box.

Our Horticulture Education Series are pay-what-you-can. The 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.
