Karen Holland Bird
1948 - 2020
Sadly, on Saturday, September 5, 2020 Hall County Master Gardener,
Karen Bird, passed away from COVID-19.
A member of the HCMG class of 2013, we will remember Karen fondly as an avid volunteer at Gardens on Green, the Redbud Project, and other master gardener projects.
Karen will be sorely missed.
Due to Georgia, UGA, and Hall County restrictions, we are not able to hold in-person programs at this time. We encourage you to follow our Facebook page for information on free virtual classes offered by Extension, information on seasonal garden issues, and reminders of upcoming garden to-dos.
We also regret to inform you that our annual Fall Garden Expo has been cancelled. Currently, the venue is not open and available to us and the current Executive Order issued by our Governor does not allow for gatherings of more than 50 people. Additionally, our local COVID-19 data proves that holding the Expo would not be a wise move on our part. All of these considerations, and the interest in keeping our volunteers, vendors, and patrons safe, prompted us to take such actions. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.
In an effort to support our vendors, who are small business owners, severely impacted by current conditions, we ask that you visit our Garden Expos tab, where you will find a list of our Spring and Fall vendors with links to their website or social media site and the possibility of online shopping. We hope that you will consider patronizing their businesses for all your Fall gardening needs.
Come grow with us. We are now accepting applications for the Hall County Master Gardener 2021 class. For more information go to the UGA Extension Hall County website https://extension.uga.edu/.../hall-county-master-gardener...
