Master Gardener Extension Volunteers Contribute to the Community
Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs) help educate homeowners and gardeners by answering their lawn and garden questions; diagnosing plant problems; recommending appropriate plants for specific growing conditions; and helping our community clients achieve satisfying results from their landscapes and gardens. MGEVs accomplish these goals by volunteering at the Master Gardener Help Desk; making site visits; giving presentations or lectures to the public; participating in annual public events, such as fairs, expos, and other Extension or Ask a Master Gardener events; teaching classes and workshops; and maintaining public gardens. MGEVs also provide hands-on training at demonstration and education gardens.
