CLICK ON RED HIGHLIGHTED WORDS IN POSTS TO VIEW LINK. 

NCSU has been updating their online resources.  Most of our links go to their researched information.
Therefore, some of our older links no longer work.  We are working on fixing outdated links as we become aware of them and apologize if you are led to a defunct site.

CELEBRATION TIME

The Pitt County Master Gardeners' 2018 Year-end Party proved that not only can these folks garden, they can entertain!  At Eric's suggestion, past MGs (emeritus, leave-of-absence, alumnae, etc.) were invited to come back for an afternoon get together.  Additionally, our new MG's were introduced.

THE MORNING WREATH MAKERS

The Master Gardeners enjoyed helping two groups of crafters make their wreaths.  Everyone had a fun time and created wreaths that rival professionals.
