What projects are your MGs doing?
I've been asked to do a series of articles for our MG newsletter, highlighting what some other programs are doing elsewhere in the country. The hope is we will be inspired to incorporate new programs or modify old ones after finding out what is working (or not working) for others.
I'll start. We're in coastal California. Our principal programs are the Helpline, Junior Master Gardeners, working with the local botanical garden on speakers' programs, staffing a table at the farmers' markets and non-profit garden tours and, occasionally, hosting a community seminar with guest speakers. Our program requires a minimum 50 hours service for the first year after graduation and, thereafter, 25 hours per year. Many do much more than that.
So, what special programs are our fellow MGs doing? What' great? What's not?
