Announcing the Blount County Master Gardener Gazette

We are excited to introduce our Spring 2020  newsletter!  For many of us our gardens are our sanctuaries where we collect ourselves. There is so much beauty to experience, and we feel a deep connection to the Earth as we dig in the soil; plant herbs, flowers and vegetables, pull up weeds and watch our plants grow.  Click  HERE …… and enjoy!
