What Do Tennessee Extension Master Gardeners Do?
Tennessee Extension Master Gardeners are volunteers who love to garden and help others. We complete a Tennessee Extension Master Gardener Training Program, which is presented by our sponsor, the University of Tennessee Extension Service. Training sessions are held every year in the Fall. Our volunteers donate at least 25 hours a year on Official Master Gardener Projects that enhance the agricultural beauty and quality of living in Madison County. We also complete at least 8 hours of Continuing Education annually.
How to Get Involved.. If you are interested in becoming a TN Extension Master Gardener, please contact Celeste Scott, Madison County Extension Agent. The 2018 classes began in August with 30 enrolled and will be wrapping up in October!

Projects for Fall 2018
Please keep updated on project work days that are being scheduled for this fall by following the "Madison County Master Gardeners-Members Only" Facebook group. New things are popping up every week and we have had several planned group workdays cancelled & rescheduled due to weather. Facebook is the quickest and easiest way for us all to stay up-to-date with these projects. Great things are happening within our organization and I encourage everyone to find a project that is meaningful to you and get INVOLVED!! Happy Fall Ya'LL!!
Madison County Master Gardener Scholarship 2018
The recipient of this year's Madison County Master Gardener Scholarship is Mr. Charles Darnall. He is a graduating senior of the University School of Jackson. His interests in horticulture have guided him to pursue a degree in environmental science. He will be attending Delta State University in the fall. His love for agriculture and learning are evident through his selection of part time jobs, and choices of extracurricular activities. We are so proud to award this young man with a scholarship to help him further his goals through higher education.
