Resources for GA MGEVs

By working with others through consumer horticulture programming, MGEVs spark Georgians of all ages to use the knowledge they gain to grow their gardening abilities. Here’s a few notes of thanks highlighting how MGEVs use their teaching and gardening skills to positively impact others.

“Herb and Barbara Metz have been MGEVs for 26 years. In 2022 they lead an office beautification project at the Forsyth County Extension Office. They both are always there when needed and are some of our most reliable volunteers.” -Thank you Herb and Barbara, Forysth County MGEVs!

“Mel has been a Master Gardener Extension Volunteer for 8 years. She gave presentations for the Georgia Green Landscape Stewardship program on Composting in the fall and spring of 2022 and has given the spring 2023 presentation at our local library. She is a great teacher and is always willing to help where she is needed.” – Thank you, Mel, Forysth County MGEVs!

“Rosemary Sims goes above and beyond. Over the past fours years, she has worked to develop and maintain the native pollinator habitat in Effignham county. This year, she is adding more plants and continues to maintain the garden.” -Thank you, Rosemary, Effingham County MGEV

Mel Brannen, Forsyth County MGEV, leading a class on compost education.

From the classroom to the garden, MGEVs use the tools they gained through training to educate those around them. As they share the power of plants, they spark those they reach to add beautification to their landscapes, try their hand at composting, or contribute to local pollinator protection projects. Thank you GA MGEVs for giving your time to growing your communities and sparking interest in horticulture along the way!
