Community Horticulture

Dutchess County Community Horticulture Program works to address the needs of the general community through education, classes, demonstration landscapes which focus on water conservation, best management practices and edible landscaping to supplement food expenses. The diagnostic lab offers integrated pest management options and solutions to commercial and consumer questions pertaining to agriculture and horticulture.

We are proud to acknowledge the many wonderful, trained volunteers that help to carry out our programming.
