Master Gardeners

The JCC/W Master Gardener Association is a program funded by the Virginia Cooperative Extension Program. Each year, these Master Gardeners plan projects to share knowledge and empower the community about gardening in Virginia. One of these projects is the Historic Triangle Learning Garden, where Master Gardeners teach garden participants and each other how to grow herbs and vegetables organically and raise extra produce for FISH distribution.

 

This Community Garden was built in 2010. For $25 a year, participants can grow their own garden with the help of the volunteer team. Volunteers share all responsibilities, such as watering, mulching, and weeding. Recently, the Learning Garden put in a Monarch Butterfly way station and a border of companion plantings.

 

Every Spring, the Learning Garden puts on a community "Grow It & Eat It" Seminar where Master Gardeners explain how to create home vegetable gardens, control pests organically, and build raised beds. At this event, Master Gardeners also sell a variety of plants including annuals, perennials, shrubs, flower baskets, herbs, and vegetables.
