The Home and Garden Information Center (HGIC) is a state-wide program that provides outreach education to Maryland residents and beyond.
HGIC has been a national model for outreach education since 1990. Their success is the result of inter-disciplinary programming and multiple learning/teaching modes. Their educators develop web resources and are engaged in social media, direct client consultations via email and phone, classroom instruction, hands-on training, and demonstration projects.
From their website you can access:
