Our Mission

We are a local chapter of the Virginia Master Gardeners Association. Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners (VCE-MGs) are volunteers working in partnership with the Virginia Cooperative Extension to encourage and promote environmentally sound horticulture practices in the community through sustainable landscape management. VCE-MGs play a vital role in educating and reaching out to their local community. Master Gardeners help the Extension Service solve gardening problems and teach environmentally sound practices by:
  • Working in information booths at community events and fairs
  • Maintaining demonstration gardens
  • Answering garden questions at plant clinics
  • Teaching horticulture to beginning gardeners and youth
  • Using special talents, such as writing and photography, to benefit the program.
