On Gardening


Several years ago, I received Master Gardener Certification in the State of Mississippi after a rigorous program that included a lot of homework and hands-on training. Since then, I have volunteered on gardening projects for cultural centers, libraries and the Audubon Society, where we collectively learned to install, grow and care for a variety of plants in a variety of climates.

After completing a year of solid volunteer work, I began public speaking at herb festivals, blueberry festivals, bookstores and garden clubs. Topics varied from rain gardens to herb planting. At each event, listeners taught me much more than I could have dreamed. It has been a privilege.

This year, I will begin writing a new column for the Master Gardener Newsletter, called Garden Tips which I will share on this blog under the header, On Gardening.

Thank you for your support and as always, happy gardening!
