Dear Friends of Montgomery County Master Gardeners,

We are pleased to present our 2021 Speaker Series, A Fresh Start in the Garden. The Montgomery County Master Gardeners’ mission is “to educate Maryland residents about safe, effective, and sustainable horticultural practices that build healthy gardens, landscapes, and communities.”

We typically offer in-person events such as the Spring Conference and Grow It Eat It program as well as provide presentations to groups upon request, however, due to the pandemic, we have shifted our educational programs to an online format. Whether you are a new participant or a returnee to Montgomery County Master Gardeners education programs, it is our goal to provide you with new ideas and information to help you solve your horticultural problems and take pleasure in your gardening efforts. We hope you will enjoy this series. Thank you for your continuing support of all the Master Gardener programs.

Sincerely,

Stephen Dubik Horticulture Consultant Master Gardener Coordinator
