Lee County Master Gardeners

Lee County Master Gardeners

Who We Are

The Master Gardener program is an all-volunteer organization found in all 50 states and three Canadian provinces. The program provides avid gardeners with many hours of extensive horticultural training. In return, participants volunteer through local extension offices by answering homeowner's horticulture questions, coordinating garden-based workshops and trainings, and fostering community relationships through school and community gardening projects.

Master Gardeners in Lee County

The Master Gardeners of Lee County are passionate about gardening and even more passionate about investing in their communities.

Master Gardeners in-training work the homeowner hotline answering questions related to vegetable and flower gardening, pest control, tree and shrub selection, and more.

The Master Gardeners network with community garden clubs, other organizations and neighboring counties to provide educational opportunities for gardeners of all ages – amateur to "master".

In addition, Master Gardeners host an annual Plant Sale. Proceeds benefit programs of Lee County Extension.
