Granbury Master Gardeners are volunteers who work with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to improve gardening skills throughout the community. Program objectives are implemented through the training of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners. We collaborate with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension to conduct youth and community education; establish and maintain demonstration gardens; and provide a speakers bureau. We work with special audiences in the community (4-H horticultural clubs, Junior Master Gardener groups, schools, and others) for youth and community outreach of a horticultural nature. We recruit and educate new Master Gardener candidates for effective volunteering.
It is with regret that the 2020 Plant Sale has now officially been cancelled. This decision was made after conferring with all Executive Board Members and Brady.
Over the past two weeks we have donated 500 plants to the hospital and 150 plants to the Police department and Sheriff’s office. This has virtually depleted our inventory.
I want to especially thank our Plant Sale Committee headed up by Olivia Barden. Her committee consisted of Shawn Massey, Louise Hooper, Tara Jones, Larry Smith, Drew Ingram, Vickie Poston and Collen Listenbee. These folks had many meetings and were poised to have a very successful sale. Note these are all from our 2019 Class. They deserve a BIG THANK YOU!
On another note, I have had several questions regarding the volunteer hour requirements for this year. You have half of the year to fulfill your requirements and many ways to achieve your goals. If you have questions contact me or Brady.
This has been a very unusual year but I feel we are in a good financial position and will be okay. I cannot tell you when regular meetings will resume but will let everyone know when that happens. I miss all of your smiling faces and will be happy when we can once again resume our regular activities. In the mean time be safe and make wise decisions.
Mark your calendars with these events!
