Horticulture Projects Developed by Charles County Master Gardeners

As part of the Maryland Master Gardener program, we carry out a wide variety of projects, all with one primary goal: to assist the public in learning about and using sound and sustainable horticulture practices.  We visit local schools, conduct plant clinics, and provide onsite advice and assistance with gardening and landscaping issues.

Our projects promote environmentally sound horticulture practices.  To see what we are currently working on, please see our latest newsletter, The Compost, for the latest information on new and ongoing projects.

If you or your organization in Charles County would like assistance with planting techniques, plant selection, or plant bed design, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
