If you want to dig deeper into gardening, you are on fertile ground. Plow through our pages to find all the dirt on gardening in the MidSouth and activities of local Master Gardeners. We are compost of people from all parts of the country, both natives and transplants. Our knowledge stems from classes offered by the UT Extension in Shelby County. Rooted in a tradition of Tennessee volunteerism, we branch out, growing community projects and planting seeds of knowledge wherever we can cultivate an audience. Weed love for you to learn more about us so you can reap the rewards of good gardening. Leaf a message for the webmaster if you have any questions.
