NEW Spring Training Option for 2021                                    TN Extension Master Gardener Training                                 

For this FIRST time, we will offer a SPRING training for TN Extension Master Gardeners here in Madison County.  Sessions will be delivered in a hybrid approach with Lectures delivered live via ZOOM on Tuesday mornings 9am-11am, and optional Hands-On Lab activities to be completed as a group or individually.  This portion of the training is flexible and we will make adjustments as needed in consideration of COVID-19 and health concerns.  Once registration is complete, we will discuss out options for these Lab activities as a group.

Events 

Fall Plant Sale

UT Gardens-Jackson & Madison County Master Gardeners

The sale was a Great Success!  We would like to thank all the MCMGs who donated plants for our portion of the fundraiser, and all those who donated their time to make this such a fun event.

The sale has been extended to 2 days in an effort to reduce the number of shoppers at any given time.  The sale is scheduled for Sept. 30th and Oct. 1st from Noon-6pm.  The sale is being hosted at the West TN Research & Education Center 605 Airways Blvd. Jackson, TN 38301 in the back parking lot area.  Only  50 shoppers will be allowed inside the shopping area at a time in support of social distancing efforts and masks will be required for all.  Cash and Checks only please.  For more information click here.
