The horticulture program in Clark County is staffed by Horticulture Educator, Pam Bennett; Program Assistant Richmond Pearson and 125 Master Gardener volunteers who maintain the Snyder Park Gardens and Arboretum.
Master Gardener Volunteers (MGV) answer gardening questions throughout the growing season. Additionally, volunteers work with the SEEDS Community Garden program to support 25 community gardens and the MGV Victory Garden. Staff also assists with commercial horticulture production questions.
Our goal is to extend information from the university to the public in the area of horticulture and its related fields, including growing and pest management so that gardeners and commercial producers alike can be more efficient in growing plants, and be mindful of environmental stewardship.
