Since 1979, North Carolina Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteers (EMGVs) have been leaders in this internationally acclaimed program, guiding homeowners in making environmentally sound decisions in their landscapes. Trained by North Carolina State University faculty and staff, EMGVs provide research-based information about gardening and environmental stewardship to individuals and communities across the state. EMGVs engage the community through education and outreach on a wide variety of subjects and through a broad spectrum of projects, all designed to maximize their impact.

In McDowell County, we have an active Extension Master Gardener organization. They support youth programs with Agriculture Awareness Field Day, school garden clubs, and an annual scholarship. They have beautification projects with the Joseph McDowell Catawba River Greenway Amphitheatre and Rutherford Road Adopt-A-Spot. They support community garden and other public garden efforts.
