Adams County Master Gardeners

The Adams County Master Gardeners are involved in a number of volunteer projects that give back to the community. With nearly 40 active Master Gardeners, volunteers are able to offer a variety of projects including community gardening, demonstration gardens at the Veteran's Memorial Home and Moorman Park, a sensory garden at a local elementary school, and a variety of other activities including the annual Gardener's Palette held the first Saturday in March. The Adams County Master Gardeners are always looking at ways to reach out into the community and help others "Learn To Grow". If you are interested in becoming an Adams County Master Gardener, please contact Kari Houle, Extension Educator Horticulture, for more information.
