The park at the Port Royal Farmers’ Market  is happy to announce that it will again host a series of classes, lectures and workshops about gardening in this unique climate.

Since the gazebo would not allow for social distancing, Lunch and Learn will be held  where we first started,–under the live oak tree at Heritage Park. The classes are free,–just show up at the gazebo at noon with a folding chair.  No registration is necessary.

Since 2010, the project’s producer, Sandra Educate, has enlisted a very talented group of presenters to talk and instruct about the challenges of gardening in Beaufort County.  “We have professionals and talented Master Gardeners giving educational and entertaining classes.  Audience participation is encouraged and we always have wonderful door prizes of plants and books donated by the presenters and attendees.  Some of the plants donated are daughters and granddaughters of plants won as door prizes at previous Lunch and Learns!”, Sandra reports. “Lunch and Learn has become an institution here in Beaufort and we’re so glad to be able to continue it”.



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

The Lunch and Learn classes are held under the Live Oak Tree 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.
