Urban Gardening

Master Gardeners and interns "Come Grow with Us!" Help this down county program thrive and grow. The Urban Gardening committee typically plans its upcoming season in January, and sends an email announcement to the general membership. All are welcome with their ideas and talents to join monthly meetings. Each UG activity gets an assigned "topic expert" to lead a volunteer team of three or four people responsible for getting that particular monthly activity ready. Here’s how to learn more:

  1. Request to receive information or committee meeting schedule. Email Anne Hilliard or Linda Barrett for information.
  2. Come to a monthly committee meeting 2nd Thursdays 10am-12noon, typically held at the Silver Spring library.
  3. Sign up for a Saturday activity and view topic leads at our Google link
