Home Grounds and Gardens


Alabama Cooperative Extension Morgan County offers Home Grounds and Gardens information.

Allyson Shabel, Alabama Cooperative Urban Extension Agent, presents a Rain Barrel class at Decatur Farmer’s Market.  Classes such as this one are offered by Extension to encourage water conservation methods and bring awareness to non-point source water pollution.  Allyson emphasized the fact that 50% of water pollution is non-point source that is a direct result of our daily actions.
