Engaging Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteers in meaningful discussion about volunteering, outreach and community.

Thank you for a welcoming entrance!

shared by Julie Aring, Coordinator for Clayton County’s Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Program

Because MGEVs are knowledgeable and creative volunteers, Extension can put its research-based information out there to greet the public. Connie McDonald and Colleen Ammons, MGEVs in Clayton County, have been making the Extension office a welcoming place for eight years.  Every quarter, Connie and Colleen update the front entrance bulletin board with light-hearted and informative gardening information, drawings and photos. Individuals visiting our office stop, look at the bulletin board and smile.  Thank you, Colleen and Connie, for creating a welcoming entrance way at the Clayton County Extension office!
