Extension Education

The State of Georgia has many Master Gardeners who continually need continuing education opportunities to improve their skills. With the many developments and the complexities of horticultural science, the need for Master Gardener Extension Volunteers is essential. In partnership with the Henry County Master Gardeners, UGA Extension Henry County has planned and implemented four Henry County Fall Gardening Symposiums since 2018. The program was also open to the public; some participants were not Master Gardener Extension Volunteers. Each program has had four presenters who discussed native plants, pollinators, winter gardening, gardens in small spaces, and others. A total of 177 people have participated in the program since its inception. It also had a silent auction and several vendors. A post-program evaluation of the qualities and information presented by each speaker was given to the attendees. Of those who responded, on a scale of one to five, with one being the lowest and five the highest, the average was 4.75. Several of the participants commented, “All of the speakers were interesting. Their presentations were educational, and I have new ideas that I plan to implement in my garden. Thank you for this opportunity,” and “This program has been amazing. I have learned much about the type of plants that can make a difference in improving the appearance of my landscape. Many new ideas to think about for my situation,” and “I learned much today that I found helpful and will use it.’
