Master Gardeners are committed
to learning and to communicating their knowledge of gardening to others.
Master Gardeners will direct their efforts to creating and maintaining an
awareness of the need for intelligent stewardship of the environment.
- Commuity Grants for 2017
have been awarded. We are giving out 13 grants for a total of $4925.00.
- Classes to become a Master Gardener
and applications due by December 19th, 2016. See Trainee Class for
Becoming a master gardener involves lots of learning,
but also some hours to "payback" the hours of
teaching. Fewer (volunteer) hours are required yearly once you stay in the program.
There is a
fee of $150 for class materials. Please contact Montgomery County Extension office
540 - 382-5790 for the up to date scoop.
- NRV Master Gardener Assoc will provide speakers on a wide variety of
gardening topics. Remember; "gardening" covers a big range of stuff.
If your club/group/school might need a speaker, contact the NRV coordinator at (540) 382-5790
