Who are the Madison County Master Gardeners?
We are fortunate to have a TN Extension Master Gardener Program right here in Madison County. Our organization has been active in this county for over 20 years and was first established under the guidance of Extension Agent Bill Wyatt. The group has grown in recent years to a membership of over 200 volunteers. We have over 30 official volunteer projects in the surrounding community that are organized and managed by our members. Master Gardeners make it a priority to continue their education in the plant world and share that knowledge with others.
