The Master Gardener’s information table is where we answer gardening questions and have handouts available on various current horticultural topics.
The Master Gardener’s may participate at community events where our Horticultural message can be an integral part of the event theme. We reserve the right to cancel within one week of the event if staffing by the Master Gardeners is not available.
