Gardening is considered our nation's most popular pastime, yielding fresh fruits
and vegetables for the dinner table, a cleaner environment and aesthetically pleasing
landscapes. North Carolina Cooperative Extension helps gardeners learn more about
new plants, native plants and environmental stewardship. Extension-trained Master
Gardener Volunteers are instrumental in these efforts, sharing their knowledge of
plant selection, cultural practices and pest management with fellow gardeners, school
students and others in Forsyth County.
