Master Gardener Q&A Session at Daniel Island Library

[1/19/17] Daniel Island, SC – The Tri-County Master Gardener Association will offer soil sample testing and other answers to gardening questions on a monthly basis starting in February.

Spring is right around the corner in the balmy Lowcountry. Have a pesky bug problem in your garden? Need your soil tested? You can ask all those questions and more when the Tri-County Master Gardener Association (TCMGA) visits the Daniel Island Library – starting on February 6th.

The TCMGA is a non-profit organization made up of trained volunteers that spread across the Lowcountry and participate in several events every month. According to their website, “the mission of the Clemson Extension Master Gardener Program is to select, train, and utilize knowledgeable volunteers to facilitate the educational work of the local Consumer Horticulture Agent by delivering researched-based information to citizens of the state.” Two ways that the TCMGA accomplishes their mission are by developing “increased environmental awareness through the prudent use of fertilizers, pesticides, etc.” and giving “group learning and teaching activities for non-commercial clientele.”

The Berkeley County Library System (BCLS) facilitates the delivery of this information. BCLS’s vision is “a literate, informed, engaged and enriched citizenry.” What better way to learn than to turn your questions into golden opportunities to grow your garden and your mind?

The TCMGA will visit the Daniel Island Library every first Monday of the month at 4 pm. If you have a soil or gardening sample, simply place it in a clear plastic bag for easy test and transport. The TCMGA volunteers will also provide handouts and references materials as needed. For more information about the TCMGA and how you can get involved, click here.
