Pickens County Master Gardener Program
The Georgia Master Gardener Volunteer Program is an educational program offered through county offices of the Georgia Cooperative Extension Service. Through this program, individuals are trained and certified in horticulture and related areas.
These individuals, in turn, volunteer their expertise and services, under the direction of their County Extension Agent, to help others through horticultural projects that benefit the community. Master Gardeners bring the latest horticultural information and practices from the world of research to their communities' landscapes and gardens. Through the Master Gardener program, thousands of people in the United States and Canada have been trained as volunteers.
