Clayton County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers

Home Page

            

The Clayton County Master Gardener Volunteer Program is an educational program offered through county offices of the Georgia Cooperative Extension Service. Through this program, individuals are trained and certified in horticulture and related areas.

These individuals, in turn, volunteer their expertise and services, under the direction of the Clayton County Extension Agent, to help others through horticultural projects and activities that benefit the community. Master Gardeners bring the latest horticultural information and practices from UGA research to their communities’ landscapes and gardens.

Through the Master Gardener Program, thousands of people in the United States have been trained as volunteers.

We routinely meet on the First Monday of each month @ 6:30pm at First United Methodist Church, in Jonesboro, Ga.

Consider becoming a member by applying to the Master Gardener Certification Program.  For more information, please contact Winston Eason, Clayton County Horticulture Extension Agent, 770-473-5434. We would love to have you join us!
