New Castle County Master Gardeners

Master Gardener Volunteer Educators (MGs) play a key role in distributing information for the home gardener.  They are vital links in an educational chain that begins with research from the University of Delaware and the horticultural industry.  Master Gardeners’ outreach efforts include Home Gardener Workshops and Presentations, Youth EducationThe Garden Line and Plant Diagnostic Service, and Demonstration Gardens.

This fall’s Home Gardener Workshop Schedule includes lawn establishment and maintenance, an open house in the teaching gardens, integrated pest management, landscape design, and pruning.  Register Now! 

 

This summer, visit the Master Gardeners in their Native Plant, and Vegetable and Fruit Demonstration Gardens surrounding the NCC Extension Office on Wyoming Road.

Already, in early August, Master Gardeners have grown and harvested, and donated almost 400 pounds of fresh produce to the Food Bank of Delaware as part of the Plant a Row for the Hungry program- blueberries, raspberries, lettuces, beans, cucumbers and more.

For more information or to schedule a visit contact Extension Educator, Carrie Murphy, cjmurphy@udel.edu.
