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.
Madison County Master Gardener Scholarship Recipients 2017
Mr. Fisher Overton is a graduate of South Side High School and will be attending Tn Tech University in the fall.

We are so happy that our organization has been able to support not 1 but 2 scholarships for 2017. It is an honor to help foster a love for horticulture and agriculture in the hearts of our youth and hope to continue this tradition for years to come.
