The Limestone Master Gardener Volunteers
Since our inaugural class in 1992, more than 200 people have received the 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, LCMGA 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.
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.
Monthly meetings of the Limestone County Master Gardeners Association are held on the 2nd Monday, 1:00 pm, usually at the Limestone County office of ACES, 1109 West Market Street in Athens. 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. We usually try to schedule 3-4 evening meetings during the year so folks that work can attend and share in the camaraderie. Evening meetings are held at the Athens Visitors’ Center, 100 N. Beaty St. in Athens. LCMGA dues are $10.00 per year. If you have questions about the Alabama Master Gardeners Program, please Contact Us.
