Resources for GA MGEVs

Can you believe it?! Our Open Garden Days are coming to an end! It has been an absolute blast celebrating the GA MGEV Program’s 45th anniversary through special garden events planned by Master Gardeners and Extension program coordinators. While these events are ending, know that MGEVs in your county are in these gardens throughout the year and look forward to answering your questions. Keep an eye out for many other programming they host in their gardens, or visit again independently and explore using the passive learning resources, like brochures, handouts, and signage. We are incredibly grateful for their dedication to making sure demonstration gardens are spaces that function to connect plants and people. For a final chance to get your plant fix and to be inspired by beautiful rose gardens, join us in Bartow County, Saturday, June 29th! Check our garden guide for a complete schedule. On Tuesdays, demonstration gardens in Carroll and Glynn counties are open to visitors in addition to their main events.

Remember your passports! Print your own copy from the last page of the garden guide. Each garden has a unique stamp. Be sure to get your passport stamped at every garden you visit! In addition, each time you visit a garden, complete the evaluation survey to be entered in a drawing for prizes. Be sure to include your name and email address at the end of the survey so that we can contact you if you win. One prize drawing entry for each garden visited and survey completed. There will also be a top prize awarded to the individual who visits the most gardens. To enter this giveaway, take a photo of your completed Open Garden Days passport and email it along with your name and phone number to masterg@uga.edu. Unique garden stamps will be verified, and the individual who has visited the greatest number of gardens will receive a prize. In the event that there is a tie for the number of gardens visited, winner will be determined by a random drawing. Winners will be drawn on July 2. All completed survey entries and emailed passports received by 11:59 PM ET on July 1, 2024 will be eligible for a chance to win a prize!
