Limestone County Master Gardeners
Limestone County Master Gardeners (LCMG) has begun the process for registration 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 300 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. Follow us on Facebook and check out our newsletter. For much more information about who we are and what we do, please visit our LCMG website.
The Limestone County Master Gardeners meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at the Athens-Limestone Public Library in Athens. We alternate day/evening meetings with daytime meetings at 11:30AM and evening meetings at 5:30PM. Before getting down to business each month, we have guest speakers on topics ranging from ferns to flags, tours of local gardens, or other fun and informative activities. Master Gardener dues total $20.00 per year; $10.00 for LCMG and $10.00 for Alabama State MG.
LCMG has resources to support your community project.
