Along with the Demonstration Gardens, the Master Gardener Program sponsors educational clinics which are available to the public. During operating hours, people can bring questions to the clinics which are staffed with MG volunteers (as volunteers are available). We’re on hand to look at your problem (samples need to be brought to the clinics) and see if we can identify that bug, disease, cultural issue, etc. We appreciate as much information as you can provide so that our answers can be as thorough and accurate as possible. Also answered are questions about how to do something, what plants are best for our area and your specific situations, composting questions, water-wise solutions, Integrated Pest Management, etc.
