Allegany County Master Gardeners recently hosted their 1st annual Open House and Plant Sale on May 4th, 2013. Master Gardener Volunteers hosted the event at their Demonstration Garden which is housed on site at the University of Maryland Extension office in Allegany County. Composting Demonstrations, Container Gardening Education and youth scavenger hunts were some of the educational activities held in conjunction with the plant sale. UME staff also provided information about the various programs offered in the county including, Agriculture, 4-H, FSNE and EFNEP. Visitors were given tours of the demonstration garden and greeted with smoothies provided by the FSNE and EFNEP programs. All and all the event was a major success and the Master Gardeners look forward to hosting this annual event in the years to come.
