COVID-19 Update:  All in-person events are canceled for 2020.  In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions imposed by our Governor’s Executive Orders and directives from Virginia Cooperative Extension executive leadership, we are uncertain about when Extension Master Gardeners will be able to hold face-to-face events.

Please check back occasionally for postings of electronic events.
