Master Gardeners educate and serve the community using research-based information on best practices in horticulture, environmental stewardship and integrated pest management.
There are three ways the public can access this information.
Master Gardeners are available to answer your gardening questions by phone, by email, at community events and garden tours and at Dixie Lee Farmers Market on Saturday mornings and Tellico Village Famers Market on Wednesday mornings. Knoxville Area Gardening Tips Facebook Group presents Gardening Tips Live at 9AM on Saturdays.
Interested in horticultural topics? Reserve a trained speaker at no charge to speak to schools, clubs and other civic organizations. The Speakers Bureau also prepares seasonal topics to present at community venues open to the general public through the year.
