Our mission is to extend lifelong learning to Georgia citizens through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families.
Goals for Our Citizens
Our goal is to educate homeowners, hobby farmers, master gardeners, and green industry representatives about management of soil and water to produce a healthier environment in and for our gardens, pastures, animals, and landscapes.
Agriculture & Natural Resources
We offer training in landscaping, pest management, identification of weeds and plant diseases and researched information for clients to achieve their highest goals as a homeowner and professional. Soil samples($8.00 each) and water analysis testing for pH or lead (prices vary depending on test preformed) are processed through UGA laboratories. We serve as a collection site for these samples as well as results. You are more than welcome to call about prices of testing before bringing your samples.
Question for a Master Gardener?
Answers are just an email or phone call away. Our MG's (Master Gardeners) are happy to assist with questions about gardening, lawns, vegetables, pruning, and trees. The information will be UGA unbiased, researched information. Publications are also available. Drop our Master Gardener an email at Master Gardener Desk. You can also call 678.377.4010. If you are having a problem with a plant, send some pictures (make sure they are small (jpg) and are nice and clear so we can help you to identify the problem(s), insects, etc.
