2010 Extension Master Gardener Graduates

The Watauga County Extension Master Gardener Program congratulates recent graduates from the 2010 spring training program. Participants completed 11 weeks of training in horticultural topics including plant growth, soil health, composting, identification and prevention of insect and disease problems, and plant propagation. Volunteers are working on completing horticultural fact sheets for the general public and are also developing landscape design plans for garden beds around the Watauga Extension office.

To complete their volunteer service, graduates will each contribute at least 40 hours of assistance throughout the county. These volunteers are essential partners in meeting the vast home horticulture needs of county residents.  Graduates include: Joan Brannon, Gale Buchanan, Ana Maria Castanheira, Arlena Creasman, Jimmy Davidson, Leon Hodges, Pat Howell, Slade Howell, Russell James, Nell Kline, David Kline M.D., Kathy Lee, Coleman McCleneghan, Liz Rose, and Renee Williams.
