The Richmond Public Library and the Richmond Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners are pleased to announce a new educational opportunity for all Richmond City residents.
The program started last Saturday, May 4 from 10 am – 12 noon and will continue through October 26, 2013 (with the exception of Holiday week-ends and the month of August), each Saturday you will find one to two Master gardeners staffing an information desk on the first floor of the Main library. The Help Desk offers the community an opportunity to stop by and speak with a Master Gardener about their gardening questions and concerns.

Please stop by and visit with a question. If an answer cannot be provided that day, it will be emailed to you within a week’s time. For more information regarding the master gardeners help desk, please contact Chris Baum at christinebbaum@gmial.com.
