Union County Extension Master Gardeners offer several educational programs throughout the year.

On the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., we hold the Successful Gardener programs. Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, Extension Staff, and local experts cover a wide range of horticulture topics at these meetings. UCEMGV are involved in providing in-school and after-school programs, they set up informational booths at Farmer’s Markets and various community events. The group holds 3 plant sales each year – a February tree and fruit sale, a Spring Plant Sale, and a Fall Bulb Sale. The group hosts an annual Heritage Festival and Wild Turkey 5K Run & Walk that is free and will be held on September 22, so save the date. There will be food, exhibitors, vendors, speakers, and lots of kid’s activities.

From April to October the Union County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers offer the “Ask a Master Gardener” program at their Teaching Garden on the last Saturday of each month from 9-11 a.m. You can bring plant samples for identification or you can stop by and ask questions or bring samples for diagnosis. The next Ask a Master Gardener program is Saturday, May 28.

These programs are free and open to the public. Visit the Union County Master Gardener website for more information at Once you attend one of the educational programs, you can choose to be added to the notification list of upcoming educational programs.
