Hill City Master Gardeners

The Hill City Master Gardener Association (HCMGA) is a group of Master Gardeners who serve as volunteer educators for the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service. HCMGA volunteers are trained to provide citizens of Lynchburg, Amherst and Campbell counties with Virginia Cooperative Extension research-based information. The Hill City Master Gardener Association was formed in 1991.

What We Do

We work in our communities presenting programs in all aspects of gardening: turf, landscape, flowers, vegetables, grounds management, trees, house plants, insects, diseases, fruit crops and herbs. Special attention is paid to conserving and protecting our ground and surface water and to the safe and proper use of pesticides and fertilizers. Master Gardeners staff a hotline to answer questions and to help solve problems of area citizens. The phone, (434) 455-3740, is manned from 9 a.m. to noon. Monday through Friday during the growing season, from mid April through Mid October. In addition, we staff a booth at the Lynchburg City Market each Saturday during the growing season.


Fifty hours of classroom training plus fifty hours of internship are required to become a Master Gardener. Hill City Master Gardeners are a cross section of people with something in common -- a desire to share their time, knowledge and skills in promoting sound horticulture practices that protect our environment.
