Master Gardener Associations all over the state do many great things. Here is a highlight from the 2013 Annual Report:
“Ask a Master Gardener”, started in 2012, features information tables at Farmer’s Markets in Madison and nearby areas to provide research-based gardening and horticultural support, educational resources, and information about the MG program to market goers throughout the season. The project expanded in 2013 to over 12 Farmer’s Markets in both urban and rural parts of Dane Co. and provided information to 672 people versus 195 people the previous year. “Ask a Master Gardener” information tables were also staffed at the Olbrich Home Garden Tour in July and at the West Madison Agricultural Research Station Field Day in August, as well as at garden events by Community Action Coalition and Habitat for Humanity.
