River Region Louisiana Master Gardener Volunteer Program
2010 River Region Master Gardeners
The River Region Master Gardeners have a strong commitment to the LSU AgCenter. They are a unique group of individuals, highly motivated who enjoy their volunteer service as gardening educators. During the 2010 fiscal year, River Region Master Gardeners enhanced their volunteer involvement through active participation in monthly program meetings and through a variety of educational gardening activities presented to the public. Educational programs presented by River Region Master Gardener volunteers during 2010 included six gardening workshops on landscape irrigation, rose culture, hummingbirds, butterfly gardening, plant propagation and composting; 13 plant health clinics and informational booths at one garden show, three festivals and nine Saturday farmers markets; six local and three regional beautification projects; one tomato greenhouse demonstration project; and three gardening talk presentations to members of local garden clubs.
In 2010, River Region Master Gardener volunteers reached more than 8,000 citizens through a variety of educational gardening programs presented to the public. Collectively, they contributed a total of 762 volunteer hours that equaled an in-kind service donation of $17, 239 in support of the LSU AgCenter.
