Tips from The Garden
No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of spring. ~Samuel Johnson~
Despite our current medical situation, the sunshine and warming weather will bring the flowers, the colors and the scents of springtime. “Social distancing” allows for a walk around the neighborhood and in our many parks to catch what we can of this lovely time, and working in our gardens can be a wonderful and beneficial use of our time at home.

A Lesson in What Volunteer Means
by Trainee Debra W.
When I signed up for the CMG 2020 class, I vaguely understood that it involved volunteers—I knew a requirement for completing the program was 50 hours of volunteer work on my part, anyway. But I assumed the program was run by AgriLife Extension Service personnel as part of their jobs. I have been overwhelmed to see that in reality the whole program is made possible by Master Gardener volunteers who organize, plan, procure, write, manage, enable, direct, teach, work, demonstrate, encourage and devote countless volunteer hours to make CMG a reality. Volunteers are in charge of everything!
