Wiregrass Master Gardeners Fall Plant Sale
Dothan Area Botanical Gardens
We have two plant sales a year spring and fall.We volunteer along side the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service to help in our community. We help with lawn and gardening questions.We teach when and what to plant in home gardens. We grow by seed, propagation or plants given to us so that we may sell them at our plant sale. With the money we earn we use to buy seeds and we donate back to our community. Our state conference will be next year in Dothan. We are looking for sponsors. We also have our Lunch and Learn series starting back Sept 1st at the downtown library. It is free and we welcome all to come out with their lunch between noon and 1pm. We have a silent auction coming up on Tuesday Sept 26th at HIghland Park United Methodist Church. Our next master gardener class starts in January at the HOuston County Extension Office. It is on wednesdays from Jan to the end of march.
