Kanawha County Master Gardeners
Registration is now open for the West Virginia Urban Ag Conference to be held September 18-19 here in the Kanawha Valley. Check out the full conference schedule.
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.
