Ask The Master
Gardener

The first group of Ashe County Master Gardener students, under the guidance of Travis Birdsell, Extension Agent, Agriculture, graduated in the Fall of last year.  After 13 intensive classes, guest lectures, a difficult final exam, and continuing education throughout the year , eight master gardener interns and one certified master gardener are ready to serve our fellow Ashe County gardeners.  The interns will be staffing the "Ask the Master Gardener" phone hotline at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Ashe County Center at (336) 846-5850 and email account (MGAshe@AsheCountyGov.com) beginning March 16th, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, and continuing each Monday.   Additional days/hours may be added at a later date.  We are anxious to put our new skills to the test!  But, please be patient with us...We are still learning.  We will make every effort to answer your questions correctly and timely.  The Master Gardeners will also be participating in service projects around the County.  So, stay tuned! For additional information regarding Master Gardeners and other programs available at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Ashe County Center please call (336) 846-5850.
