Kanawha County Master Gardeners
Kanawha County Master Gardener Jennifer Soule was awarded 2015 WV Master Gardener of the Year by the WVU Extension Service at the annual conference at Pipestem Resort on March 28th. She was also awarded Kanawha County’s Master Gardener of the Year by WVU Extension Agent John Porter.
The West Virginia University Extension Service Master Gardener Program is a volunteer educational program meeting the horticultural needs of everyday West Virginians. The program trains volunteers, utilizing their expertise to teach others more about plants, their culture, their importance to the environment and to our quality of life.
Master Gardener volunteers provide technical assistance to their local county Extension office in order that consumer horticultural activities and programs can be more effectively and efficiently delivered to more people. For more information about our local Master Gardener program, call the Kanawha County Extension Office at 304-720-9573 or contact John Porter.
