Growing Communities.

The Master Gardener Extension Volunteer (MGEV) program in Georgia is a volunteer training program designed to help University of Georgia Cooperative Extension staff transfer research-based information about gardening and related subjects to the public by training home gardeners to be volunteer educators. Through active MGEV programs in many Georgia counties, UGA Cooperative Extension is able to reach out and serve more citizens with educational programming and demonstrations. 

On August 23rd and 24th, 2019, Georgians of all ages from all over the state will join efforts to document our pollinators. Won't you join us?
