About

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. Our success is the result of inter-disciplinary programming and multiple learning/teaching modes. Our educators develop web resources and are engaged in social media, direct online client consultations, classroom instruction, hands-on training, and demonstration projects.
