April 29, 2017 – GGMG Plant Sale

Spring is coming, and with it, the much-anticipated GGMG Annual Plant Sale.

Located again this year at the Jeff Lynch Appliance Store outdoor lot (Woodruff Road and Roper Mt. Road intersection), this event offers local gardeners an opportunity to purchase plants nurtured and donated by Master Gardeners. Shoppers will find a wide selection of plants, ranging from herbs, vegetables, and perennials to shrubs and young flowering trees. Among there will be some native plants and unusual specialty plants.

Proceeds from the GGMG Plant Sale fund an array of programs which support our mission to educate the citizens of Greenville County in gardening fundamentals. Among our programs are the annual Symposium, Ask-a-Master Gardener activities, GGMG Speakers Bureau, Jr. Master Gardener Summer Camp, the Ellen Hilderbrand Community Grant Program, and others.
Gates for the sale open Saturday, April 29, 2016 at 8:00 AM and savvy shoppers are usually waiting in line for this event.

The event winds down around 1:00 PM, and late-comers usually discover that the early-birds got the best plants. The sale will go on, rain or shine. Please mark your calendar for an event you won’t want to miss!


BROWN BAG LUNCHES

Jordan Franklin, Master Gardener Coordinator and Consumer Horticulture Agent for Greenville County, is offering a series of Brown Bag Lunches for Master Gardeners and their guests.

These talks will be presented in the Extension Office Meeting Room, and because seating space is limited, attendees will be asked to register; however, all events are free. Master Gardeners will be invited via our usual email system;  please feel free to bring non-MG guests.

Feb.  21 -   Soil Health: Foundation of a Healthy Garden
