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.

 

Fall Home Gardening Series

(Our Winter Home Gardening Series will be announced soon)

We are offering three classes this fall which are free and open to the public. The classes are for approximately two hours starting at 9:30 AM.

Saturday September 10 at Mechanicsville Library – Raised Bed Gardening – Raised Bed Gardens are more than piles of soil surrounded by a frame. Explore the possibilities of your imagination in the garden with ideas on bed design, plantings and presentations.

Saturday September 17 at Ashland Library – Putting Your Garden to Bed – Why wait until spring to do what you could do in the fall to help your gardens and you have a smooth winter-spring transition. Learn the steps to take to put your garden to bed for the winter.

Saturday September 24 at Mechanicsville Library – Canning and Freezing – Take advantage of the bounty of your garden or good bargains at farmers markets by preserving your fruits and veggies for future use. We will talk about the options available for canning, freezing and dehydrating.
