Master Gardener programs, also known as Extension Master Gardener Programs, are volunteer programs to advise and educate the public on gardening and horticulture. There are nearly 95,000 active Extension Master Gardeners, who provide approximately 5,000,000 volunteer service hours of per year to their communities. Once volunteers are accepted into a Master Gardener program, they are trained by cooperative extension, university, and local industry specialists in subjects such as taxonomy, plant pathology, soil health, entomology, cultural growing requirements, sustainable gardening, nuisance wildlife management, and integrated pest management.

On May 31, our own Nassau County Master Gardeners will conduct their Spring Plant Sale from 9 a.m. to noon, at the James S. Page Governmental Complex in Yulee. Plants are available on a first serve basis, so come early for best selection. For more information call (904) 879-1019.
