We're pleased to
present articles written by Master Gardeners in Pennsylvania.
Information found here will cover a wide variety of gardening and
growing topics. Two new
articles will appear each month, so stop back often to see
gardeners are volunteers trained by the Penn State Extension. Once
they complete their training, they help the Extension better serve
the home gardening public by answering questions, speaking to
groups, working with 4-H horticultural projects, participating in
civic beautification, maintaining demonstration gardens, and
teaching plant sciences and horticulture.
Master Gardeners are
willing and able to educate individuals and groups on gardening
topics such as plant selection, composting, soil improvement, pest
control, vegetable and flower gardening, pruning, and more. The Master
Gardener program is active in 48 States, the District of Columbia
and 3 Canadian provinces. Penn State Cooperative Extension adopted
the Master Gardener program in 1982, and in 2012 there were 1,400
volunteers in 58 Pennsylvania counties. Articles on this page were
written by Master Gardeners from Allegheny County, Pa.
