Public Events and Tours
Our Extension Master Gardeners sponsor a variety of events throughout the year for area gardeners. Though some events have been on hiatus due to COVID-19 limitations, we continue to offer as many educational opportunities for gardeners as feasible.

Design & Grow will be packed with ideas and information for beginning and longtime gardeners alike. It is an opportunity to learn from the pros, garner ideas for your garden and landscape, and find inspiration in new plants and gardening experiences.
