The Hanover Master Gardener Association Is:

Collectively, Hanover MasterGardeners volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours to the Hanover County community, educating and assisting children and adults of all ages about the love of gardening. Additionally, we provide grants to Hanover County educators for agricultural projects in grades K-12.

As we spread the good word about how much fun the Hanover Master Gardener Association is, we invite new friends and faces to join the fold and reap the benefits of becoming a member. Once you have completed the Master Gardener Training Course (starting Jan of each year), we invite you to become an Association Member! Get a cool name badge, Hanover Master Gardener Association hat and gain the distiction of enhanced knowledge of our natural world. The greatest benefit is in knowing you are supporting the organization that supports you and your community as a Master Gardener.

It's time to look for bugs in your garden! They are already scheming to get the jump on you.
