Limestone County Master Gardeners

Limestone County Master Gardeners (LCMG) is a non-profit group registered under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The objectives of our organization are:

  • To extend the Master Gardener’s knowledge of and interests in horticulture and related activities.
  • To provide horticultural community service opportunities for its members.
  • To provide opportunities for its members to meet and associate with others who have similar horticultural interests.

Since our inaugural class in 1992, more than 400 people have received Master Gardener training in Limestone County. Many remain active supporting our community projects and continuing to learn more about gardening in North Alabama. Each year, LCMG members perform more than 1,500 hours of volunteer service through a variety of projects that benefit the Athens-Limestone community.

For much more information about who we are and what we do, please visit our LCMG website. And follow us on Facebook.

The Limestone County Master Gardeners meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at 12:30pm at the Athens-Limestone Public Library in Athens. We provide a monthly community seminar series called “Gettin Dirty at the Library” every 2nd Tuesday at 11am which is free and open to all. We have guest speakers on topics ranging from home pruning how-tos to tours of local gardens, or other fun and informative activities. Master Gardener dues total $25.00 per year.

LCMG has resources to support your community project.
