Guilford County Cooperative Extension
Gardening is considered our nation's most popular pastime, yielding fresh fruits and vegetables for the dinner table, a cleaner environment and aesthetically pleasing landscapes. North Carolina Cooperative Extension helps gardeners learn more about new plants, native plants and environmental stewardship. Extension-trained Master Gardener volunteers are instrumental in these efforts, sharing their knowledge of plant selection, cultural practices and pest management with fellow gardeners, school students and others.

Learning Center Becomes A Reality
"Let's meet in the Learning Center!" Five years ago, those words were simply a wish...an idea, simple yet profound: have an outdoor classroom where children and their families could come into the garden for programs on "sustainable gardening practices, thereby maximizing the Legacy Demonstration Garden's educational purpose and impact for the community." Today, they are a reality.
This is just a sample, check out our other Success Stories
WHAT WE'VE HEARD:
The EMG program has continued to stimulate me to grow in my knowledge of gardening and plants and to be able to share what I know about gardening with others.
