Master Gardener Associations all over the state do many great things. Here is a highlight from the 2013 Annual Report:
Lafayette Co. MGVs create an educational display every year at the county fair. The group takes great pride in choosing a project that can be easily understood and produce by the average gardener. Members created container gardens of all types from perennials to edibles, succulents and in basic, to creative containers using material found in their garden shed or yards. There were many more questions at the booth this year than in the past, most focused on the plants that were used in the container gardens. Several fair attendees said we should have raffled them off at the end of the fair.
