Celebrating Extension Master Gardener Volunteers

Watauga County Cooperative Extension partnered with the Daniel Boone Native Gardens to celebrate the vast contributions of Extension Master Gardener Volunteers in the High Country.  Year after year, these trained individuals give back to their community with horticultural experience, expertise, and invaluable sweat equity!  Volunteers enjoyed a gorgeous morning at the Native Gardens, visiting with one another, touring through the garden and observing the Bird and Butterfly Garden, a project between the Watauga County Extension Master Gardeners and the High Country Audubon Society.
