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

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