Snellville Community Garden Award

Led by our own GCMGA Member and Garden Manager, Wes Nettleton, the Snellville Community Garden was recently awarded $1,500 from the 2020 Food Well Alliance Community Garden.    Wes is quoted as saying “We are extremely appreciative to the Food Well Alliance for their financial backing to community gardens throughout the Atlanta metro area.” “Through this effort we can support the local area and expand our opportunities to educate both young and old about the environment.”

Wes’s team includes Lucy Nettleton and Martha Whitman, also GCMGA members…… Congratulations to all.  Please read the entire article at https://www.snellville.org/community-garden-snellville-gets-1500-boost-from-food-well-alliance?fbclid=IwAR14Lq0cr4qpo2ems4kUn-3UX7Sih7ph0S-ERCgRqXVE4l8oYQTSyKZEYTc and you can learn more about the garden at http://www.snellvillecommunitygarden.com/

 

Plant Sale 2020

At this time, the Gwinnett County Master Gardener’s Association is following CDC guidelines and cancelling our annual Spring Plant Sale fundraiser on Saturday, April 25, 2020, at the Lilburn Library and City Hall parking lot (4817 Church Rd, NW, Lilburn).

Great Georgia Pollinator Census

Many of our members participated August 23 and 24th counting pollinators all over the county.  We had great fun figuring out which pollinator we were looking at… and we sure met some nice folks too.  We’re looking forward to hearing the results and already planning for next year!

Need Seeds?

Two years ago, some of our Master Gardeners came up with a different way to share seeds with our fellow gardeners.  GCMGA members, Jackie Kujawa, Jeff Hicks, Carole Teja and Becky Wolary worked together to add this unique set of shutters to display packets at our local Gwinnett County Extension Office.  Over this period of time, members added to the offerings and helped themselves… we’ve seen the shutters full, and near empty.  This has been fun way to share heirloom seeds or extra seeds that we all seem to end up with.
