Bibb County Extension Master Gardeners

Master Gardeners Class of 2017The members of the 2017 Bibb County Extension Master Gardener class have stayed together as a group since the class ended in July 2017.  They have logged nearly 1,000 volunteer hours since that time in leading several community service projects.  Those projects include plantings at Bibb Medical Center Nursing Home and the Brent-Centreville Library, as well as herbs classes that educated 64 Bibb County residents on how to care for and cook with herbs as a healthy nutritional substitute for salt.  At the group’s September meeting, they welcomed Tuscaloosa County Master Gardener and new Bibb County resident Tina Barnes.

Also, Bibb County Extension Coordinator Matt Hartzell recognized the 2017 class members present as fully certified Master Gardeners by giving them certificates and name badges.  Pictured are (L-R) Scott Giddens, Pam Cottingham, Michelle Giddens, Tina Barnes, Cindy Ragland, Sharon Hope, Charlotte Dodson and Megan Johnson.  Group members and certified Master Gardeners not pictured are Simon Carbone, Elaine Jones and Suzanne McKinley.  Group members discussed next steps at their meeting, including a potential 2019 Bibb County Master Gardener class in late winter/early spring.
