Seven Baxter County residents recently completed the Master Gardener training offered by the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service. The group participated in a 40-hour training program, and each volunteer will donate 40 hours back to the Extension Service in the areas of horticulture and ornamental horticulture.
The group will meet monthly and work on community service projects throughout the coming year. As of November, the Baxter County Master Gardeners have logged 3575 volunteer hours back to the community in 2017.
The new Master Gardeners are
