Kent County Master Gardeners play a key role in distributing information about environmentally friendly practices for the home gardener. Topics include identification and control of home, lawn, and garden pests, plant diseases, plant cultivation, lawn management, and wildlife habitat development.
Kent County Master Gardeners’ outreach effort is organized and carried out as follows:
The Kent County Master Gardeners recently awarded three students each with a $1,000 scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year. Accompanied by their family members, each student spoke briefly to the group at the annual July dinner meeting. Shown are, from left, Bill Murray, Scholarship Chair, scholarship winners Amanda J. Hotaling of Clayton, Lee D. Severson of Dover, and Kalina C. Celio of Dover, and Beverly Gemmill, Kent County Master Gardener Chair. These scholarships are made possible by funds raised through the annual Kent County Master Gardener’s Plant Sale that is held each April at Delaware State University.
