We provide answers to your gardening questions by staffing the Master Gardener Hotline at 785-843-7058, April through October.
We disseminate gardening information at the Lawrence Farmers Market every Saturday during the market season. Our volunteers also pick up excess produce from market vendors and deliver it to Just Food, the Douglas County food bank.
We maintain five demonstration gardens in Douglas County to provide you with gardening inspiration and information about what grows best in our area.
We provide gardening information at public events like the Kaw Valley Seed Fair and Native Plant Sale.
We organize annual events held on a rotating basis. The Spring Fair is held in early April in even numbered years and is an informative event about gardening and lawn issues that also includes garden art and family activities. The Garden Tour is held in early June in odd numbered years and provides an opportunity for you to view some of the most beautiful gardens in our county and take home inspiration for your own garden.
We coordinate the Junior Master Gardener Program at several local schools and lead children’s garden programs at the Lawrence Public Library.
We provide a speaker’s bureau of garden experts for your classrooms, garden club or organization.
