KARMEN KETRON: Gardening at home | Agriculture



CARMEN KETRON Clemson Extension

As many of you know, Tony Melton of the Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service has been with us for over 40 years. Tony has given us countless news articles to laugh, love and learn from with his expertise and knowledge of horticulture.

It is with great honor and respect that Clemson Extension bids farewell to a lifelong friend.

Tony’s many years of service and his immense breadth of knowledge and love for horticulture cannot be duplicated. This brilliance combined with his wonderful nature and caring personality shows you how much of a huge impact he has made on so many people.

If you would like to send Tony a thank you and appreciation card for the incredible work he has done in the community over the years, send it to:

Extension of the County of Florence

By the way, I would like to assure people that the column will continue, even if it is a little different. My name is Carmen Ketron, the new Urban Horticultural Officer for the counties of Florence and Darlington. I come to this organization with a BA in Political Science from Coastal Carolina University, an MS in Environmental Science, and an MPA from the College of Charleston.

I started my horticultural career growing mixed vegetables and cut flowers in the Tidewater area of ​​Virginia, then led community and university gardening programs at the College of Charleston and the Medical University of South Carolina in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
