Mobile County Produce


Buy Fresh, Buy Local is part of a national trend to be more informed about the fruit and vegetables we eat each day. The Mobile County Extension Office provides educational programs and support to both our local fruit and vegetable producers and home garden enthusiasts. Our own Master Gardener Farm to Table events additionally promote eating fresh and buying local in the spirit of a healthier lifestyle for the whole family. “Grow your own” gardening techniques are highlighted by Master Gardeners in the Extension Demonstration Gardens located at the Jon Archer Agricultural Center. Daily home and garden questions can be answered by calling 1-800-252-4769, the Master Gardener Helpline.
