In 2010, in conjunction with the Master Gardener Information Table at the Port Royal Farmers’ Market, the LMGA decided to hold a few informal lectures. It was a humble beginning. Our first classes were held under the live oak tree behind the information table.

In 2012, we obtained permission from the Town of Port Royal to use the gazebo in the park that houses the Farmers’ Market.

Our goal was to provide a summer long series of informative, free classes on subjects relating to horticulture and designed to address gardening in this unique climate.

Our community has a large population of “transplants” from other areas of the country who find that the heat and humidity here in the Lowcountry present a real challenge to successful gardening. ‘Lunch and Learn’ hopes to educate these people, as well as locals, in best gardening practices for this area and to further their interest in responsible horticulture. Successful gardens keep gardeners growing.

Winning an international Master Gardener International MG logoaward inspired us to expand the program even further.

The Lunch and Learn classes are held at The Gazebo at the Farmers’ Market, Heritage Park, Port Royal. Classes begin at 12:00 noon. Classes are free. Just bring a folding chair.  No registration is necessary.
