Ask-a-Master Gardener

Booths at the HC Farmers' Markets & our own Spring and Fall Garden Expos

Ask a Master Gardener booths are an important and vital tool used to assist the local community at area Farmers Markets, local plant retailers, and events located around Hall County. The Hall County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers distribute important research-based up-to-date educational gardening information at these booths. Event flyers and information about the Master Gardener Program are circulated as well. Hall County Master Gardener booths support the local county extension office by providing answers to home gardening questions and assisting folks in the community with their gardening needs. 

Gardens on Green

at the Hall County Board of Education Building on Green Street in Gainesville

Gardens on Green, located on the property of the Hall County Education building, is a cooperative effort of Hall County Master Gardeners and the Hall County School System. Gardens on Green seeks to provide a place not only for growing plants, but for "growing good kids", for growing the human spirit, and ultimately for growing a better community.

   Youth Gardening

The Youth Gardening program is an international program started by the University Extension Network of Texas A&M University. Its mission is "to grow good kids by igniting a passion for learning, success and service through a unique gardening education." Currently, twenty eight universities nationwide implement the program at the state level, with Texas A&M serving as the national headquarters.

Pollinator Garden

at Elachee Nature Science Center

Pollinators need your help! The Pollinator Garden at Elachee Nature Center is located next to the Nature Preschool and was created to demonstrate that you don't need a lot of space to create a garden that attracts beneficial insects such as bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, and beetles. 

 

 

 
The Redbud Project

Model for Hall County Conservation

The Redbud Project is a citizen conservation movement to bring awareness to Hall County's amazingly biodiverse ecosystems of native species plants. To inform the community of the vast collection of these

plants, which were marooned in the banks of the Gainesville Ridges millions of years ago by glaciers and upheaval of the Earth's tectonic plates, volunteers foster awareness of our environmental legacy.

Victory Garden

at the Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University

A small group of Hall County Master Gardener extension volunteers from the class of 2012 has taken stewardship of the Victory Garden. During World Wars I and II, Victory Gardens were planted at private homes and public parks in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada to reduce the pressure on the public food supply as a result of the war effort. 

 

 

 

 

Wilshire Park

Wilshire Park is a delightful oasis located between the picnic pavillion and the playground at the end of Wilshire Trail in Gainesville. So many people walk the trails and take children to the playgound, making this a highly visible area. It is this high visibility that provides informal opportunities to educate the public about pollinators and promote the Hall County Master Gardener Extension volunteers.

 

Ag Day

Ag Day is a cooperative effort between the Hall County Extension, Master Gardener Extension volunteers, various agricultural entities in the county, and the Hall County School System. Annually, one Hall County elementary school is chosen to host the program. One morning is set aside and the agencies involved come to set up learning stations for the students.
