Northern Neck Master Gardeners

We are an organization of volunteers with a common interest in gardening and community service.  As an educational program of Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE), we bring the resources of Virginia’s land-grant universities (Virginia Tech and Virginia State University) to the people of the Northern Neck.

Our organization supports a variety of programs specifically targeted to the unique growing conditions and environmental concerns of our largely rural region, which is bordered by two major river systems and the Chesapeake Bay. Activities include: science enrichment programs in the schools; seminars and workshops for gardeners; gardening advice newspaper articles; horticultural therapy for seniors; a speakers' bureau; shoreline advisory services, and specialized gardens demonstrating basic gardening principles.
