On July 17, 2014 a new project for the Smith Co. Master Gardeners was approved.  Earlier this year a group of MGs have worked with youth who were required to do community service on a gardening project.  On August 4th the first “official” weekly meeting of the group met at the Smith County Juvenile Service site. Leaders Linda Sargent and Anne Pattullo were there, along with MG Historian Bill Kelldorf to record the event.  To view the special pictorial news of that event, go to MG Extra Aug2014.
