HorticultureIn the spring of 1997, Clark County UW-Extension coordinated the first ever Master Gardener training sessions in Clark County.  Since that time, 2 more sessions have been held growing the ranks of certified master gardeners to over 30.  The master gardeners have also organized a local association which is open to the general public.  They call themselves the Over the Garden Gate Gardening Club and they meet on a monthly basis to talk gardening.  If you wish to become involved with the gardening club, call the Extension Office at anytime.  To help serve the people of the county, the Master Gardeners have an educational booth at the county fair, a plant swap at the Clark County fairgrounds every spring on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, and they are always busy planning more educational opportunities.

Starting in Janaury 2005 there will be specialized fruits and vegetables training offered through the Master Gardner program.

  • New Seed Catalogs are out! January 31, 2018
    This time of the year, I am like a kid in a candy store.  I love looking at seed catalogs and picking out what I want to grow, seeing what is new this year.  I often spend too much money and end up with more seed than I can use in one growing season.  So I thought it would be a good time to talk about what a seed catalog/ seed packet can tell you about your […]
